In the Seminar Marketplace: Birdhouses, Books, Plants and Much More
As many of you who attended last year’s seminar know, the Marketplace is a wonderful source of plants, garden art, garden books and so much more. Marketplace hours are 7:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on seminar day.
A plant/sales holding area makes it easy to store your purchases while you attend classes.
This year’s offerings will include Master Gardener handmade rustic birdhouses and hypertufa pots as well as new butterfly water dishes and crystal garden totems. Popular floral note cards, denim garden aprons and gauntlets, and owl and bee boxes also will be for sale.
Master Gardeners also will repeat last year’s sell-out sale of heirloom and hybrid tomato seedlings.
In addition, a variety of growers will offer bromeliads, flowering perennials, Australian natives, succulents in nursery pots and containers and specimen plants of many different species.
Visiting the Marketplace offers attendees a chance to learn even more about plants and gardening practices as they interact with our vendors.
We have several published speakers at the seminar this year and their books will be for sale. Nationally renowned authors such as Pat Welsh, Bob Perry, Paul Isley and Nan Sterman will be there to sell, sign and talk about their books.
