Spring Open House
Saturday, April 30. 8 am - 6 pm
Ready. Set. Grow! After slogging through a long, snowy winter and experiencing an inspiring Flower Show, chances are you're eager to get back in the garden! Come to the Spring Open House on Saturday, April 30 to discover the hottest spring plants and learn the latest gardening trends.
The estate and gardens have been decked out for a “proper” English tea. Far from old-fashioned, this party features funky found objects and pops of spring color. A display of PHS Gold Medal Plants will highlight the absolute best plants for the region.
Highlights of the Open House include a children's activity and the opportunity to sow vegetable seedlings with the PHS City Harvest team. Curds 'n Whey will be on hand to sell tasty lunches and snacks. You can also attend free mini-demonstrations. Topics are:
10 am, "Compost ‘Tea’ & Other Tips for a Greener Garden," Glenn Ashton
11 am, “A Modern Twist on Elegant English Design,” Melinda Moritz
12 noon, “600 Pounds of Produce: Competitive Pumpkin Growing,” Brandon Huber
1 pm, “The Royal Treatment: Traditional English Arrangements," Audrey Nichols
2 pm, “Fit for a King: The Must-Have Plants for Spring,” Tom Reber
Exquisite plants for your castle...or backyard, patio, or windowsill will be available for purchase, and the expert staff will help pair you with the perfect species for your growing conditions. Remember, PHS Members receive a discount on plant purchases! See you on April 30!
