Home & Garden Show
T he Florence Home & Garden Show
will offer new ideas, services and prod-
ucts as the central Oregon coast tries to
put winter weather behind with a look
toward spring.
The 2018 show is set for Friday, March
2nd through Sunday, March 4th. Cus-
tom wood products, hot tubs, furniture
and appliances and dozens of vendors
featuring products and services for both
the home and garden will pack the Flor-
ence Events Center.
The Show incorporates vendor ex-
hibits, landscape design, food tasting,
demonstrations, prizes and giveaways
into the upbeat, warm and intimate at-
mosphere of the events center, explained
show director Jon Thompson.
Show hours are from 2-6 p.m. on
Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday and
11-3 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $2
for adults and $1 for children 12 and
under. Admission is free from 4-6 p.m.
on Saturday.
A Breath of Spring is the theme of
the centerpiece design by Laurel Bay
Gardens. The local nursery’s display
has been the focal point for the show
since its inception and this year it will
showcase new growing techniques
and fresh design concepts for coastal
gardens. This will include new prod-
ucts for the grow-your-own gardeners,
including Hydrodynamics rooting
trays, new potting soils specific for op-
timum growing in pots, and new lines
of organic fertilizers.
The garden theme display will also
include low maintenance plants that
add seasonal color all year long to
the landscape, a new line of outdoor
pottery, fountains and birdbaths and
delightful new indoor pottery for air
plants and succulents.
The show is sponsored by Three Riv-
ers Casino Resort, Bi-Mart and Central
Lincoln PUD. It is presented by Coast
Radio and the Siuslaw News.
