Get Inspired at the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show

The Minneapolis Home and Garden Show opens this weekend and once again we’ll be there selling bulbs, plants, garden books and more. We’re also hosting the Garden Stage, where you can hear a variety of speakers on garden topics.
What a great way to get inspired for the garden season ahead!

The garden stage is near the rear of the auditorium close to the many indoor garden displays.

The Minneapolis show runs two weekends: Feb. 22-24 and March 1-3 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. As part of their membership, MSHS members get two free tickets to the show, which can be picked up at the MSHS will-call booth in the lobby. The Garden Stage is located on the show floor back near the featured gardens. We are pleased to co-sponsor these talks with Pond King Water Gardens. Plant material around the stage is provided by our friends at Wagners Greenhouse and Garden Center.

Whether your interests are water features, edibles, pollinators or even chickens — we’ve got you covered. Please check out the schedule below and we’ll see you at the show!
