This show was half vendors of mainly unrelated things. - handcream, wine. The flower & garden part was not particularly interesting and not very extensive. Add the $28 to park & the overall cost hits $40 even with Goldstar. Not counting the...continued

There were a few changes that I absolutely liked. . . The use of pre purchased ticket with easy entrance. The white "Gulliver Travels like giant with little people to greet him at the entrance and us too. The collection of items that could be...continued

There was very little to the show this year even compared with years past. It seems to be on a steady decline. No eye-popping displays, just lame exhibits designed to steer you to the vendors. Is nobody creative in charge? Too bad. I've been to...continued

What they presented was lovely and informative. It's just that the show is getting smaller and smaller with less local designers showing their creations. I think I only counted about 8 window boxes. In the past I've seen as many as fifteen or...continued

I enjoyed the seminar on hydrangeas, but there wasn't much to look at for creative ideas. There were some good venders there, but some venders had nothing to do with flowers or gardening. The guy selling hot/cold packs was kind of rude. Also...continued

I was looking forward to the garden show, having attended this in years past. However, this year the show was much smaller. There were very few actual gardens to see and a smaller market. After buying tickets, plus an overpriced lunch on...continued

I liked the flower displays, the informative educational signs at the Racine Wisconsin Zoo display, it was great learning gardening tips from the University of Illinois and I loved the creative outdoor furniture. However, I was disappointed with...continued

Not worth going to. Every year seems to get worse! I used to love going to this show. I won’t go again.

I have attended the garden show for the past 20 years, it has been in a steady decline for the past 6 years. Too bad - I am always so ready for a little spring. I will be skipping it completely next year. If you are looking for a flower fix...continued

I've been attending for years, and each year it
becomes more of a sales expo than a flower show. They did not have enough flower scapes. Thinking of maybe not attending any longer.

This show was directed primarily for people who have gardens or just need some ideas and direction on how to maintain their gardens. Past shows have had beautiful and exotic displays that made you feel happy to be there. This show was just...continued

Very disappointing. Very few garden displays; guess I remember previous shows years ago with so much more to see. Why no local gardening clubs with their displays? I won’t be returning in the future. Not very many people attending and I know why.

Great way to spend my day! First timer, next year I'll be coming back with all my gardening questions?

I felt that for avid, experienced gardeners, there was very little merit. Show has downsized and simplified considerably in terms of garden displays. Not worth my time and parking fee.

I was very pleased and impressed with schools and children that were included and accommodated in the show this year.

I wish there had been some NEW plants to view that will be available in the marketplace this year.
