The floundering Rhode Island Spring Garden & Flower Show will combine with the Rhode Island Home Show after a drop in attendance.

The Rhode Island Home Show announced the expansion of its 67th annual show in 2017 to include garden and flower categories.

The yet-to-be-named combined show is scheduled to be held from March 30 to April 2, 2017, at the Rhode Island Convention Center. Officials say the new show will have a "green" energy focus.

Maury Ryan has run the Spring Garden & Flower Show since 2000. He says he sold the name and website of the show after attendance dropped from an average 32,000 people to 19,000 within the last two years.
