Hicks Nurseries, located in Long Island, New York, kicked off its spring season with its 30th Annual Flower and Garden Show on March 12. Due to concerns regarding customer safety and spread of the coronavirus, the event ended on March 16, ahead of its original end date of March 29. This year, the theme was “Celebration Around the World,” which featured garden displays inspired by iconic worldwide festivals and events. The displays ranged from inspiration drawn from countries across the world. Due to the shortened timeline, many customers missed out on the event but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a stroll through the photos. Here’s what the event had to offer.

The Chinese New Year garden featured a dragon winding through the display, which was full of flowering cherries, azaleas and flowers in shades of red and yellow.
