  • Martha Stewart speaking at an event in 2012.
This year, Saint Louis Art Museum's Art in Bloom festival of fine art and flowers will have a special guest — the gardening, cooking and D.I.Y. legend Martha Stewart.

When Stewart isn't busy being best friends with Snoop Dogg or winning Emmys, she is outdoors tending to her garden — something she has loved to do since she was a child. She even wrote a book about it, Martha's Flowers: A Practical Guide to Growing, Gathering, and Enjoying.

The entrepreneur previously known as M. Diddy will be talking about the book and sharing her gardening advice and wisdom at the event, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 3 at 12:45 p.m. in the museum's Farrell Auditorium. At her side will be co-author Kevin Sharkey, the executive vice president and executive director of design for the Martha Stewart brand. Together, they will sign copies of Stewart's book after the event.

Other speakers and programs for Art in Bloom include appearances from editor-in-chief of Flower magazine Margot Shaw, publisher of Feast Cat Neville, and master mixologists including Ivy Magruder, who will be strutting their stuff on everything from spectacular outdoor living to botanical alcoholic beverages. There will also be a Japanese tea demonstration and ceremony, an Art in Bloom Family Day and live music and refreshments during the weekend of the show.

Art in Bloom runs from Friday, March 2, to Sunday March 4. It is open to the public, with opportunities to browse galleries and see floral installations, but tickets are required for some programs, including the program with Stewart.

You can grab tickets for Stewart's lecture for $45 ($35 you are a S.L.A.M. member) at, along with information about the other programs. Tickets go on sale February 13 (February 8 for members).
