Some of the main draws of Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival are the topiaries staged throughout the park and the food booths. Those two alone would certainly be enough to warrant a trip, but there are some other fun features of the festival that you shouldn’t miss. The specialty gardens are both beautiful and educational. I especially enjoyed the Urban Farm Eats exhibit. I’m a want-to-be-organic-gardener who is often foiled by bugs (especially those tricky snails!) and plant diseases. Every spring I start off all excited and start with either seeds or seedlings and they grow for a while and I get a few zucchini or green beans and then bam, bugs! I love that this exhibit showed a lot of different options for kitchen gardens in non-traditional spaces.
Each display gave instructions to try it at your own home and showed examples of what it looks like when it’s successful. This was for a hay bale garden.
I just loved this whole exhibit. The combination of gorgeous plants combined with practical how-to advice resulted in a memorable display that I really enjoyed exploring for a long time. And it gave me some great inspiration for some spring plantings!
I’m linking up with run.geek.run(Disney) for a Disney filled linkup. If you need more magic in your Monday, make sure to stop by some of the other posts!
