We’ll be back at the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show again this weekend. We hope you’ll visit our booth on the show floor of the Minneapolis Convention Center and stop by to hear some of the great speakers on the garden stage. These garden talks are informative and given by real experts in their areas.
The home shows are a terrific time to get inspired for the year ahead. We also will be selling bulbs and hostas as well as books, garden decor and tools at our booth. Tickets to the show are free for MSHS members and there is a 15 percent discount on merchandise for members as well.
Garden talks are sponsored by MSHS and Pond Kings Water Gardens.
See you at the show!
