Spring is coming, and no blustery wind can blow hard enough to keep it from greening our beautiful city. Though the days are still cold and (occasionally) rainy, now is the time to think about what you want to plant and plan for in the warmer days ahead.
If you’re in need of planning ideas, put Portland’s Yard, Garden and Patio Show on your calendar. The show runs February 17 to 19 at the Oregon Convention Center. Dennis’ 7 Dees landscaping hosts the event, which is one of the largest consumer gardening shows in the country. Look for gorgeous showcase gardens for inspiration, and days filled with seminars on how to make those showcase ideas come to life in your own yard.
And if you’re a brown-thumb, like me, it’s still a wonderful place to get ideas for your dream garden – that I may have to hire somebody else to bring to fruition.
If you’d like to buy a garden of your own – and a home to go with it – contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-936-8705.
Tickets to the Yard Garden and Patio Show can be purchased a the doors for $12. Kids 12 and under are free.
