Nashville Lawn and Garden Show

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until Sun., March 5
The Nashville Lawn and Garden Show has inspired generations of gardeners and plant lovers with its live, indoor garden spaces. Creatively constructed patios, pergolas, water features, landscapes and containers of bright flowers serve as motivation for green thumbs – and those who would like to learn. The juried competition among gardeners determines Best of Show and several other awards, including the Show Theme Award presented to the gardener who best reflects the year’s theme. The region’s most talented floral designers compete for top recognition among their peers with their breathtaking arrangements, and show attendees are invited to vote for the People’s Choice Award. In 2023, gardeners and floral designers are encouraged to depict “Sounds of Spring” in their creations.
Lectures and workshops, free with admission, teach topics from attracting bees, butterflies and birds to how to grow specific flowers and plants. Experts from across the region share their knowledge and provide keys to success. Shoppers enjoy 200 vendor booths filled with garden décor, plants, flowers, lawn equipment, farmhouse crafts, bird and bee houses and more. Free trees, seeds and advice are plentiful throughout the Show. Several dozen community nonprofits host tables providing knowledge and information about historical gardens, wildlife, organic and sustainable farming, horticultural topics and more.
Show hours are 10 a.m. through 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m. through 5 p.m. on Sunday. The Show is fully handicapped-accessible. Food and beverage will be available at the café.
