Garden show season continues with the Yard, Garden and Patio Show that takes place this weekend at the Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. The show will run Friday, February 27th through Sunday, March 1st. Show hours on Friday and Saturday run 10 am to 9 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. Show admission is $11 for adults, but print this coupon for a $2 discount.
I'll be speaking Friday afternoon at 3:30 pm. I've entitled my talk, Ensemble Performances ...and the Crowd Goes Wild! I'll be sharing tips and ideas for using plants that make the cut to create show-stopping ensemble performances in your garden.
I'm thrilled to be on the docket with so many great garden communicators, all experts in their field. There are over 45 seminars and demonstrations slated for the three day show. So study the list, check it twice, and strategize which seminars you'll be attending. For the full listing of all the seminar offerings, go here.
Garden inspiration abounds. In addition to the extensive seminars, you'll find display gardens, vendors with plants and other garden goodies and, a personal favorite, the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon (HPSO) will again have its Winter-in-Bloom botanical display where plants that bring beauty to our winter gardens are featured.
Hope to see you at the show, and if you come to my talk on Friday please be sure to say hello!
