Lacoste at Gardening Saturday

“That’s a sign of spring!” says my daughter; “spring is knocking at the door!” says my son; “break out the rubber boots!” I say.  We have officially, if tentatively, declared it spring at our house.  I know many gardeners who are itching to get started.  I have a few Facebook friends who have been posting pictures all winter of their indoor herb gardens, another friend who has started some seed with her kids, and my mom has had her gardening books out, planning, since early February.

If you are looking to start your plans for spring, this weekend is a great opportunity! Gardens Manitoba is presenting the 9th annual Gardening Saturday at the Victoria Inn. Admission to the trade show provides the opportunity to mingle and chat with many Manitoba vendors, including your favourite garden centre! We’re be set up at booth 800, showcasing our fantastic fairy gardens!

The seminar schedule can be found here, and most sessions still have space to register (walk-up registration is also available). I know all these seminars will be very enjoyable AND informative. If you attend the fairy garden and terrarium workshop, you’ll even recognize Madeline as the leader!

I hope you all have a wonderful spring weekend, and stop by and say hi, if you’re at the Victoria Inn on Saturday!
