Re: garden show

I love attending garden shows this time of the year and 'smelling' green.
They start next weekend around here for the next month or so....

BUT.... I
got an ad for a sort of chain store this week.... they have their PLANTS on
sale.... geraniums, stella de'oro, flowering clematis, boxwoods, spirea,
lilac, cypress, purple fountain grass..... DUH!... this is zone 5, everything
is frozen and we are having a major winter storm this weekend.... they are
REALLY rushing the season this year.....I am looking at holding some of these
plants for close to three months before they could be put in the ground here
based on our last frost date..... geesh.

I've received
many ads in the mail for the Vita Mix over the years but as I 
recall, it's a
pricey mixer.  Does look nice though.
Our H&G show starts Thursday.  I've got
about 100 bulbs to package this 
wekend for it, fortunately made the
label/fact sheets in advance.  There are 
far fewer hort speakers this year,
but I hope to get most of my MG ed hours 
in on Saturday.  MGs get into the
show free but there's still parking to pay 

I also have to coordinate
and write orders for about 10 of our display 
gardens this weekend.  Once
again, several did not bother to hand theirs in 
by the deadline, though they
had 6 weeks to figure out what they wanted. 
When we all met in January, I
gave a presentation on some of the plants we 
are offering in the MG nursery
next year and I was surprised that they put 
many of those plants on their
wish lists.  That will make my ordering easier 
since the nursery plants were
ordered last September.

neIN, Zone 5
