Rochester's GardenScape Flower Show
GardenScape, Greater Rochester's Tenth Annual Flower and Garden Show, runs March 15-18 at the Dome Center in nearby Henrietta, New York. This year's theme is "Ten Years - A Garden Party." You can visit dozens of elaborate display gardens celebrating the garden party theme, enjoy many educational exhibits and garden seminars, and shop at Gardener's Square Marketplace and the new GardenScape Bookstore. A highlight is the specially designed interactive children's garden complete with desert island, lagoon, and tree house on the Swiss Family Robinson theme.

Proceeds from GardenScape go to support the Genesee-Finger Lakes Nursery and Landscape Association's many educational and public service efforts. Check out the Web site at Rochester's GardenScape Flower Show for more information.
