Events for Gardeners

Gardens and spring combine make unbeatable attractions for plant lovers and travelers.

As your spring and summer travel plans come up, consult this list and other internet resources and add one or more gardens, zoos and festivals to your itinerary.

Most events are more than walks through beautiful gardens – though that alone would be worth the stop for many of us. Regional, school, city and community events include plant sales, fun-runs, car shows, food vendors, family activities, parades and concerts.

Clip and save the list so you can call ahead or click through to the websites to find out more. Have an event we should know about? Email mollyday1@gmail.com
