I have been occupied this week constructing Meadows Farms’ display garden for the Capital Home and Garden Show in Chantilly, Virginia. Apparently there is an art to building show gardens, and after many years I almost know what I’m doing. We finished building a day early, and while the other gardens are still works in progress we’re back at the nursery doing whatever it is that we do when we’re not fiddling around with garden shows.
I’m trying to catch up in the office before I spend every waking hour Friday through Sunday at the show greeting visitors and answering questions, but I managed to put together a slideshow from bare concrete to ninety-nine percent finished. Follow this link to our YouTube page. The photos on this page were taken earlier today, and I suppose we’re completely done at this point after sweeping up and setting up our brochures and handouts.
