What’s Up at the Minnesota Home and Patio Show

Spring cannot be too far off, because the Minnesota Home and Patio Show begins Thursday evening. MSHS is once again hosting the Northern Gardener stage where you can hear a variety of speakers on everything from urban chickens to mushroom cultivation.

The show is held at the St. Paul River Centre and runs through Sunday evening. We will have a big selection of books, bulbs and bare-root plants, as well as a great deal on joining MSHS. (Members also receive a discount on merchandise, so don’t forget your card!) We’ll also have a potting table for children to plant up a favorite plant, sponsored by Wagners Greenhouses.

MSHS members get two tickets to the show as part of their membership. To claim your tickets, just stop at the MSHS Will-Call booth.
