KUSA - The Colorado Garden & Home Show, the state's oldest and most prestigious garden and home show which attracts more than 60,000 visitors annually, goes through Sunday.

Not only does it feature 14-acres of fragrant gardens for nine days, the Colorado Garden & Home Show is also a nonprofit organization that provides horticulture scholarships and grants statewide.

Visitors can talk to representatives from more than 600 companies from 25 states and Canada and visit with the region's gardening gurus and home-improvement experts about the best way to move your home and garden projects forward.

There are a multitude of free, educational seminars and how-to demonstrations for cutting edge gardening and home improvement ideas.

Each year, the show selects nine exhibitors from dozens of applicants, whose products or services best demonstrate innovation, energy efficiency, unique design appeal or cutting-edge thinking. There is also a juried flower show and more than 100 extravagant cakes competing for prizes in the show's botanically-correct "sugar-art show." The cakes are only on display Feb. 9 and 10.

Every dollar of every ticket sold is awarded in horticulture grants and scholarships across Colorado. Visitors can take the free shuttle by parking at Coors Field, take Interstate 25 to the Park Avenue exit and follow to Wazee Street for just $5 and ride the free show shuttle to the Colorado Convention Center.
