Garden Expo

Master Gardeners of Hamilton County
3rd Annual “Master Your Garden” Garden Expo

Saturday April 11 – Sunday April 12, 2015
Camp Jordan Arena, East Ridge TN


Once again Camp Jordan Arena was filled with wonderful vendors and exhibitors at the “Master Your Garden” Garden Expo. There was a wide variety of plants from tomatoes, camellias, and hydrangeas to orchids, bromeliads, and bonsai trees; with fertilizer, worm castings, and mulch and a variety of tools and equipment to care for your plants. Yard art included birdhouses, iron work, pottery, benches, and birdbaths. And who could resist all the homemade jams, jellies, sausage, and fresh eggs. Be sure to mark your calendar for the 4th Annual “Master Your Garden” Garden Expo next April.
