Event Overview:

The largest consumer gardening event of its kind

The show spent its first four years at the Memorial Coliseum, before moving into its current home at the Oregon Convention Center in 1991. It has grown into the largest consumer gardening exposition of its kind in the United States that is produced by a state association using member volunteers. Most large gardening and flower shows are produced by professional organizations with staffs devoted exclusively to organizing those events.
The unofficial launch of spring

The show, typically held in late February, has long been recognized as the unofficial launch of spring in the Portland area. It features the latest ideas in plant material, landscaping and related outdoor accessories from more than 300 exhibiting companies and organizations. A series of showcase gardens adds colorful pizzazz to the show floor and provides visitors with a wealth of ideas on how they can enhance their own personal landscapes.

Educational opportunities

The show also provides unparalleled educational opportunities for the public. The Oregon State University Master Gardeners head a list of more than a dozen non-profit exhibitors whose mission is to educate the public about various aspects of horticulture and the nursery industry’s environmental benefits. On top of that is a program of over 40 hours of public seminars featuring local, national and sometimes even international experts and celebrities in gardening and landscaping.

Oregon’s nursery industry

The growth of the Yard, Garden & Patio show is a reflection of both gardening’s burgeoning popularity as well as the growth of Oregon’s nursery industry in general. Although the show is a consumer-oriented gardening show that primarily showcases the offerings of retail nurseries, Oregon is one of the largest nursery growing states in the country, ranking third in total wholesale sales behind only California and Florida.

Oregon’s wholesale nursery industry recorded over $800 million in gross sales of nursery and greenhouse products in 2008.

Oregon grown

Roughly three-fourths of the nursery stock grown in Oregon is exported to other states or countries, making Oregon the nation’s largest exporter of nursery stock. And the state’s nurseries, as well as all Oregonians, can take great pride in knowing that Oregon is No. 1 in the United States in the production of shade trees, Japanese maples and most other kinds of maples, arborvitae, rhododendron and coniferous evergreens. Oregon also is a leader, ranking second or third nationally, in the production of deciduous flowering trees, azaleas and other broad-leaf evergreens.
