The 2014 Gardenland Express holiday flower and train show at the Missouri Botanical Garden, on display from November 22, 2014 through January 4, 2015, presented a journey through the history of the Garden’s plant collections. The show is designed by the Garden’s floral display team each year, starting with construction of props in early spring and installation of the show at the end of October. This year’s show included models of structures from the Garden and small town scenes surrounded by hundreds of live plants.
