See, hear, touch, taste and smell everything for your indoor and outdoor living environments at the 2007 Mid-Atlantic Home & Flower Show, February 15-17 at The Virginia Beach Convention Center. For the second year in a row, the event brings together two of the area's largest consumer shows – The Mid-Atlantic Home & Garden Show and the Virginia Flower Show.

Produced by Tidewater Builders Association and The Virginia Horticultural Foundation, the event will feature nearly 500 exhibits of products and services to enhance your home and garden areas, plus lavish display gardens.

In keeping with its theme of "Sensuous Gardens" The Virginia Horticultural Foundation will offer a variety of gardening and landscape professionals to educate audiences on all facets of cultivating and maintaining outdoor environments. With topics from container gardening and incorporating color into landscapes to herbal gardening and practicing feng shui gardening principles, these experts will appeal to all of the senses.
