Garden Talks at St. Paul Home Show

The season of garden education programs starts this month, and for gardeners, who love to learn about new techniques and proven strategies, there are an abundance of garden talks to attend. MSHS is happy to host the garden talks at both the Minnesota Home and Patio Show, which starts Thursday and runs through the weekend, and the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show, which runs over two weekends this year, Feb. 26-28 and March 4-6.

Mr. Tomato Guy will be at the home and garden shows again this year!
