Gardenpalooza - revisited…

It has been a busy summer for the Garden Time crew. We have had the usual stuff… the show, the monthly writing and other stuff for the Garden Time Online magazine and the visits to nurseries and garden centers around the area. But there is a new opportunity that we have to tell you about.
Many of you local NW gardeners know about the Le Tour des Plants. This was a fall gardening event that covered 9 days and had over 25 participating nurseries. It had become a great way to get people out to their local garden centers in the early fall and enjoy all the great plants that are in full bloom. Unfortunately, the event was cancelled after last fall…
People kept asking the Garden Time team if there was anything we could do. Soooo… we have come up with ‘Gardenpalooza: the Tour’. This event will cover 4 days this coming September 9-12. Unlike our spring ‘Gardenpalooza’ event, which takes place at one location, this event will include participating nurseries and garden centers from around Oregon and SW Washington. You will be able to go to the website and from there you can select an area you want to visit, click on a participating nursery and learn about their specials, events, classes and even watch a video of the nursery and print out coupons from your own computer.
We are excited about starting this new event and we hope everyone can come visit the participating nurseries!
