                CHICAGO IS…Getting a New Look!
The Chicago Flower & Garden Show, presented by Mariano’s and set for March 12-20, 2016 at Navy Pier, has gotten a makeover – at least a digital one.  We’re excited to share our new website, which we think conveys the beauty and spirit of the annual event and provides the tools you need to start planning your trip to “CHICAGO IS”. Take a virtual tour now at www.chicagoflower.com!                               “Ciao”, Milano
What a way to cap a summer of travels that have provided fresh inspiration and ideas for the 2016 Chicago Flower & Garden Show! In September, show director Tony Abruscato flew to Italy as part of the Chicago delegation to Expo Milano, with a 2015 theme of “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.” The Expo, an international show that dates to 1851 (not long after the debut of the original Chicago Flower & Garden Show, in fact), allows delegations from around the world to meet and learn about advances that can lead to continual growth and success; this year’s show focused on new technologies related food as the life source of the planet. In addition to gleaning insight from others in the international community, the Chicago delegation shared the best parts of the Windy City to Expo attendees, including the annual harbinger of spring that is the Chicago Flower & Garden Show.  And, of course, when in Rome (or, at least Italy), Tony couldn’t help but find and discover distinctive and beautiful blooms, from a charming streetside flower stand in Firenze to stunning gardens lining the hills around Lake Como.                  
      Planting Season, Part II
As the weather changes, it’s time to roll up our sleeves once again to transition from the summer garden to the fall garden.
It’s not too late to plant late-season vegetables, like kale, cabbage, Swiss chard and collard greens, among many others. Check your local garden center for plants that you can get in the ground or in a container to reap a late-season bounty – just in time for hearty autumn meals, too. Refresh the summer garden by planting a fall palette of cool season flowers, including pansies, marigolds and mums, embellished with ornamental cabbages and kale.    It’s also the ideal time to get bulbs into the ground for next spring’s first splashes of color.  Many new varieties are available this year, so you can have as much fun choosing spring blooms as you do getting out in the garden during this beautiful time of year.             Seminar Sneak Peak
When you’re out in the garden this fall or making plans for what you’d like to see in your outdoor space next year (it’s never too early for resolutions!), you probably wish you could bring in an expert for some inspiration and advice. Make plans now to sharpen your skills in 2016 by attending one of the show’s many seminars, such as a session on “The Joy of Gardening: The Power of Plants to Change Your Point of View” by Bryce Lane of North Carolina State University; a program on “EcoBeneficial Gardening 101: Boosting the Ecosystem in Your Own Yard” by Kim Eierman of EcoBeneficial; or a workshop on “How to Build an Organic Ornamental Edible Garden,” by author Shawna Coronado.
