An annual celebration of organic beauty, Orchard in Bloom spotlights edible gardening this year with enticing displays of fresh herbs and vegetables among the ornately kaleidoscopic flowerbeds. In the Garden Pavilions, local landscapers fill tents with vibrantly verdant environments. Out of doors, dainty microgardens dot the emerald landscape with eye-dazzling delicacies, and smaller tents host Events in Bloom, a showcase of vernal vignettes featuring tips for interior floral decoration and optimal bouquet-tossing arcs. Competitive petal planters may enter their captive creations in Containers in Bloom, a new contest to prove the greenest thumb.
This year the garden show will be chaired by horticultural Hoosier and Honorary Chair Sara Snow of Discovery Health's Get Fresh. Also joining the show are market vendors to advise and equip attendees to grow their own gardens. Curious sprouts get the chance to grow a floral seedling of their own in the children's tent while their parents nibble from the garden café and wonder why daisies spring from their fertile footprints.
Orchard in Bloom Garden Show
Orchard in Bloom’s annual garden show and symposium sponsored by National Bank of Indianapolis in Holliday Park raises funds for The Orchard School, an independent grade school for grades pre-K through 8, as well as Holliday Park. Select local landscapers create macro-landscapes with in-season botany as well as specialized microgardens, designed to showcase specific plant varieties and new design ideas that homeowners can easily incorporate into their own yards. Gardeners can stock up on tools, plants, and art at the Gardener’s Market, full of national and regional artisan vendors. The children’s area entertains youngsters with age-appropriate activities, such as filling flowerpots with soil and playing patty-cake with the limbs of trees.
