Seminars by Category
Every year the show produces over 100 seminars. So how do you choose which ones to see? We can help with that.
We’ve divided our seminars into 9 categories to help you hone in on the topics you need. If you’re a die-hard plant geek, check out “Get Growing” for plant-centric topics. Stuck with a design dilemma or challenged by a small garden? Peruse the seminars in “Solving Design Challenges with Style.”
Do you live in an apartment or condo? Check out “Interior Plant Design” for all new seminars on the beauty, benefits and care of houseplants! Plus you can harvest bushels of tips on edible gardening in our “Fresh Picked” seminars.
We’ve got “Sharing the Earth” for attracting pollinators and wildlife; “It Starts with Soil” for the latest in soil science and permaculture;“Get Crafty” seminars show how to create garden and home décor; and “See It, Learn It, Do It” seminars will help you polish your gardening skills.
And there’s a category just for “One-of-a-Kind” seminars where you'll be an armchair tourist to famous gardens around the world, and also catch a sneak preview at the gardens planned for Seattle's new Waterfront Park. And of course, there's Ciscoe's new "Garden Jeopardy Game Show." If it has to do with Ciscoe, it's always "one-of-a-kind!"
There’s one thing every seminar has in common: they are all FREE with your ticket! See one or see them all!
