One day after the wearin' o' the green on St. Patrick's Day, it will be time for the growin' o' the green as the Boise Centre throws the doors open for its 20th annual Boise Flower and Garden Show. For three days, scores of exhibitors will fill the Centre's main room with gardening ideas and some of the season's best discounts on rare bulbs and seeds. Other highlights include a display of gorgeous rare orchids, a presentation from the Boise Bonsai Society and nearly a dozen gardening seminars.
The fun grows even bigger with Wine and Jazz Nights (Friday and Saturday, 5-8 p.m.), sponsored by yours truly, Boise Weekly. Enjoy jazz by Cottonwood Duo, and Idaho beer and wine, along with mocktails from Red Feather Lounge made with ingredients fresh from Purple Sage Farms.
