Find gifts and goods for home, garden and lifestyle Feb. 26 – 28 and March 4 – 6

Charlotte, N.C.: Any project a homeowner ever undertakes begins with an idea. And those are in great supply at the Southern Spring Home & Garden Show. But to make that idea a reality takes supplies. And guests will also find those in abundance. Plants, pots, gardening tools, yard art, kitchen gadgets, wildflower wreaths, pillows and pottery, gifts and so much more are in store at the 56th annual show.

“The Southern Spring Home & Garden Show is a treasure chest of ideas,” said Mardee Woodward, the show’s manager. “Guests can leave with the inspiration, snapshots and know-how to take on a variety projects. But they can also leave with more than ideas. The show is a shopper’s paradise.”

For home gardeners, there are plants, soil, tools, equipment and more. Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging, is a perennially popular part of the Green Market. So are the bonsai trees from the Bonsai Society of the Carolinas.

Even those who lack a green thumb – but want to add interest to their yard or patio – will find something to love … perhaps in the form of whimsical yard art. (No watering needed!)

And in addition to the nearly exhaustive array of home and garden items available, there’s even more – wine, gourmet foods, purses and tote bags, scarves, soap and lotions, artisan jewelry.

More than 350 exhibiting companies will be at the show with products, services and demos designed to inspire a sense of adventure in home and garden design. And of course, the latest accessories, tools and plants are all available for purchase.

Charlotte, N.C. The Southern Spring Home & Garden Show hasn’t endured for 55 years solely because it’s big, grand and comprehensive. It’s also consumer-friendly. The show’s set-up allows guests to easily compare prices and make the most cost-effective decisions about lawn, garden and home improvements.

This year’s Southern Spring Home & Garden Show – scheduled for two consecutive weekends from Feb. 20 through March 1 – has everything under one giant roof. The show returns to its roots with the theme of “Carolina Calling.” Think: Moon Pies, barbecue, big banks, dogwoods and pine forests. The show is celebrating all things Carolina – from the state’s foodways to its stature as a financial center.

“Guests tell us the show is a big time-saver for them,” said Mardee Woodward, the show’s manager for the past seven years. “They don’t need to run all over town visiting one supplier or showroom after another. They don’t have to make a lot of phone calls or do online research. All the expertise they could want is right here under one roof. Guests get the information – including pricing – they need to make informed decisions about home and lawn improvements.”

“The show gives guests an opportunity to comparison shop and save money,” Woodward said.

The show offers guests the perfect opportunity to:

• Learn from award-winning landscapers
• Get the latest ideas on lawn and garden – and home improvement
• Sample your favorite foods and wine
• Explore designer rooms for the newest ideas in home decor
• Enjoy horticulture, design and how-to clinics
