The Hicks Nurseries Flower & Garden Show-the largest in the northeast-is featuring blooming gardens inspired by famous artists. Think of Gauguin's lush Tahitian landscapes, Grant Wood's austere "American Gothic," Georgia O'Keefe's exuberant flowers and Van Gogh's iconic sunflowers.
Visitors will stroll through garden displays that recreate the feelings evoked by artists. There'll be a vegetable gardening display in containers and landscape settings, an outdoor living area for entertaining family and friends, and an enchanted fairy garden with a towering waterfall.
The show gardens are packed with ideas. Horticulture and design specialists present practical advice and information in numerous seminars and demonstrations.
