The Hall County Spring Plant Expo is set for this weekend, Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6.
The annual event is sponsored by the Hall County Master Gardeners and the Hall County office of the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension. It will be from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the agricultural center at 1855 Calvary Church Road in Gainesville.
From antique gardening tools to whimsical critter garden art, if you’ve been searching for it, chances are you’ll find it this weekend. Whether you are looking for annuals, perennials, flowering plants or green shrubs, event organizers have got you covered.
Event organizers also have made provisions for gardeners looking for sometimes hard-to-find native plants and organic gardening accessories.
Expo admission is $2 for adults, and children are admitted free. Funds raised by the master gardeners during the expo will help fund the volunteer organization’s community service and educational programs throughout the year.
There will be food vendors, children’s activities and lots of door prizes. There will also be a variety of informative seminars throughout the two-day event.
Guest speakers include backyard bird expert Peter Gordon, flowery photographer Hazel Berger and plant propagation specialist Elaine Kelley.
