"CNY Blooms 2008"

CNYSNLA garden at CNY Blooms 2007Members of the Central New York State Nursery & Landscape Association are tending to the final details of CNY Blooms 2008 - Thursday, February 28th through Sunday, March 2nd. Building on the huge success of last year's inaugural CNY Blooms event, this year's show will feature bigger gardens, more flowers, more purveyors of environmentally-sensitive green goods and services, and a strong lineup of educational presentations!

CNY Blooms 2008 will feature spectacular gardens built in a matter of days!Speaking of educational presentations, I'll start things off at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 1st by shedding some light on Facts and Fallacies in Lawns, Landscapes, & Gardens. During this talk, for example, I'll explain which weeds are most invasive in Central New York lawns, or, maybe there aren't any invasive lawn weeds? I think you'll have to get to the show early to find out just what is a fact and what's a fallacy in your lawn, landscape and garden!

This is what one of last years award-winning gardens at CNY Blooms looked like just after setup began.Then, at 2:10 p.m. on Sunday, March 2nd, I'll encourage you look at autumn leaves, shrub prunings, grass clippings and other materials as a resource rather than "debris" to be hauled away in a talk entitled There's No Such Thing as Yard "Waste."

In 48 hours members of the Central New York State Nursery and Landscape Association will bring spring to life at CNY Blooms 2008!So, make plans now to attend CNY Blooms 2008 to see how the talented members of the Central New York State Nursery & Landscape Association can take an empty convention center hall, above right, and turn it into spring in about 48 hours, at left!
