Do It: 16th Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

The Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is always fabulous. I’m especially excited about this year’s Gardens of the World Tour. For an in-depth exploration of Epcot’s many different gardens, this tour is scheduled Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for the festival’s duration, March 18-May 31. Guests get the inside scoop on World Showcase gardens that re-create landscapes from around the world, as well as tips for adding some landscape magic to their own gardens. For guests 16 and up, $59 plus Epcot admission. Sweeping floral beds and exhibits will feature 30 million blooms. A Fragrance Garden at the France pavilion tells the “love story” of plants and perfume with Guerlain hosts guiding your tour. The English Tea Garden at the United Kingdom pavilion offers complimentary guided tours daily exploring the art and history of blending tea plants such as the camomile flower, peppermint plant, lemon tree and ginger root – all on display. The art of bonsai will “wow” guests at the Japan showcase. Do it!

Hi Sarah,
I'm so glad to see you posted on the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival. I'd like to take an extra step and invite your readers to visit the Festival during the weekend of March 27-29 when I will be the featured speaker! I'll be presenting on "Beautiful Edible Gardens."

I'll be talking about taking vegetables out of the plot and mixing them into the landscape as focal points. Also, creative ideas for plant markers, plant supports and stakes, edible fences and container gardens.

The Epcot Festival is the highlight of my year as a gardening enthusiast because of all the garden displays, seminars, entertainment and crazy great ideas from Disney's Hort department. They are amazing!

If you are at the festival when I'm speaking, look me up!
Shirley
