Don’t be ashamed to soil yourselves. The Northwest Flower & Garden Festival is in full bloom at the Seattle Convention Center this weekend.

Head to the center’s Arch building today through Sunday, Feb. 19 to check out all the leafy displays, seminars, and workshops to help flex those green thumbs. Tickets are available online from $12-$80 (kids 12 and under get in free).

We got sneak peek at all the petal power, which includes more tropical plants amid this year’s “Spring Vibes Only” theme. Look out for these highlights:

  • Treasure Hunt | Various times and locations | Kiddos can look for hidden goodies around display gardens to win a prize.
  • Container Wars | 11:30 a.m. daily on the main stage | Gardening experts face off in an intense potted plant competition (or as intense as gardening experts get)
  • Blooms & Bubbles | 2 p.m. daily on the main stage | Sip on champagne as you learn how to design your own floral arrangements.
