In 2010 the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show celebrates 25 years of inspiring California gardeners with the theme "Gardens for the Future." The new owner and management are dedicated to upholding the Show's winning combination of stunning garden displays, comprehensive educational offerings and high-quality plants and gardening products. The San Francisco Flower & Garden Show focuses particularly on eco-friendly and sustainable gardening practices, growing edibles, and farm-to-table programs, and this year will feature a full-sized outdoor Victory Garden.

There will be something for every gardener (and garden lover) at this world-renowned event. Showcased are full-size display gardens created by top designers, horticulturists and artists; free talks and practical workshops by well-known gardening experts; educational exhibits, and an activity area for children and their families. There's also shopping for the finest plants, garden art, tools and one-of-a-kind or hard-to-find specialty items. Great food, coffee, wine, beer, and live music will encourage visitors to linger into the evenings.

THE 20 DISPLAY GARDENS being created by some of the West's top garden designers and creators will come in all sizes and shapes. In addition to cutting-edge design, most will demonstrate green gardening practices such as permaculture, green roofs and walls, drought-tolerant plants, a living machine, containers and more. The display gardens will be judged by Pamela BerstlerMaureen Gilmer and Bernard Trainor.

FAMILY FRIENDLY FUN. Kids and the young-at-heart alike will enjoy the colorful display gardens and learning about carnivorous plants and insects. The "Sproutopia" area will have hands-on activities and workshops that are free with admission for families. Musical entertainment and special presentations are planned as well.

EXPERT TALKS, and how-to workshops are free with admission. The many Seminars and Workshops sponsored by Pacific Horticulture Magazine combine more talent under one roof than any other horticultural event in California.
