Children's Miniature Landscapes







Don't miss the miniature gardens created by the children of Hampton Roads. They get better every year! Be sure to read the descriptions the children write for each garden. You'll be amazed at their creativity, and you'll chuckle at some of the details they include.

If you want details about how your class or group can participate, click here for the Children's Miniature Landscapes Entry Form.  You may need to turn off your pop-up blocker to allow the window to open.

The Virginia Flower & Garden Expo is proud to encourage youth involvement in horticulture. Children 12 and younger may vote for their favorite garden. The winner gets the Children's Choice Award.
