April showers bring May flowers, which is why bees cannot find discount airfares to your yard after Memorial Day. Turn your garden into a buzzing resort thanks to today's Groupon: for $7, you get two adult tickets to the Boise Flower & Garden Show (up to a $14 value).
The Boise Flower & Garden Show, running March 25–27 at the Boise Centre, hosts myriad lush garden displays, seminars, and shopping opportunities for adventurous green-thumbs. Upon entering, visitors pass through the alpine-lake-themed garden, which sports a meadow, granite boulders, and mountain cabin. The show then lavishes eyes with a buffet of specialty displays—the orchid sale sports a vast variety of delicate stems and expert advice on how to care for them, and a bonsai display teaches adoptive plant parents how to prune shrubs without using a dunce cap.
A variety of daily seminars educate guests on basic topics that include general gardening tricks, landscape design, and rose cultivation, as well as more specialized subjects such as how to grow, harvest, and prepare edible flowers. Live jazz will soothe the ears of attendees on Friday and Saturday nights, and gardeners accustomed to using grapes only as deer bait may expand horizons in a wine event (not covered by admission price).
