2006 February Flower and Garden shows

Southeastern Flower Show
at the Georgia World Congress
February 8 – 12

If you don’t have a trip planned to Italy any time soon, you can drop in at the Southeastern Flower Show at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta and visit some Italian inspired gardens and exhibits. The theme of this year’s show is "Inspiration, Education, Entertainment . . . The Italian Experience."

And for Georgia Bulldog fans who like to garden, they may catch a glimpse of the new member of the Southeastern Flower Show board of trustees at the show: UGA athletics legend Vince Dooley, the former University of Georgia Athletics Director and the most successful football coach in the University of Georgia history. Coach Dooley is an avid gardener whose impressive Athens garden includes a species of hydrangea named after him – the Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Dooley’-- as well as a topiary Bulldog (of course) covered with a fig vine.
