Thursday the Minnesota Home and Patio Show opened at the River Centre in St. Paul. I’ll be stopping by tomorrow afternoon and will put some photos up from the displays. Shows like these (the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show opens Feb. 24) are great for finding ideas, spotting trends, and learning more about gardening.
The Minnesota State Horticulture Society offers seminars throughout the show on topics ranging from water container gardening to emerald ash borer. The programs begin hourly starting at 11:30 a.m. on Northern Gardener stage in the Roy Wilkins Auditorium. Another great reason to attend the show is the MSHS’s annual bulb sale. I’ve bought lily bulbs at the shows the past couple of years and they are high quality, reliable, gorgeous bulbs.
