Springfest jumpstarts the Season

Fountain GardenSpringfest is a must go to event every March. The Fairgrounds Conservatory and Greenhouse are filled with vibrant colors and scents of spring.  Flowers are forced into bloom for a sneak peak of summer gardens to come in Sussex County.  Every year there is a different theme carried into the Springfest Cafe hosted by Krave.  I wouldn’t miss it.  Here is the scoop:

Hang up the snow shovel and break out the garden gloves – it’s time for all things SPRING! at the 18th annual SPRINGFEST GARDEN SHOW, March 13-16th  in the sun-drenched Conservatory at the Sussex County Fairgrounds.
The area’s foremost landscape companies have been busy all winter designing their displays, forcing flowers from winter dormancy, and building the glorious gardens that will inspire you to imagine your own property improved by the latest outdoor- living trend or perhaps a new planting to enhance your homes’ curb appeal.

If you’re considering an outdoor project, visiting a local garden show is a great way to meet with various well-established, respected landscape companies and actually chat with the owners and peruse their portfolios. Springfest President and garden exhibitor David Wright says, “Springfest was created to help showcase the horticultural community. Many of these landscape companies, chosen for their quality work and reputation, have been exhibiting at Springfest for up to 18 years.” In addition to David Wright Landscape Architect LLC, visitors will see diverse gardens created by Hautau Landscaping, Inc., Three Seasons, Inc., Garden State Koi and Aquatic Center, Farmside Landscape & Design, Erik Enterprises Landscaping LLC, and Anthony Group Installers.
It wouldn’t be a ‘Garden Show’ without these displays, so each year these award-winning exhibitors gather their resources and invest weeks of time and truckloads of materials to produce a beautiful venue all for the 4-day show. It is their hope that it inspires visitors to consider the vast options available in gardening and landscaping today. Bring a camera to capture the many ideas, and find help in planning to get the most from your property.
