Spring Garden Tips

April 25 - Aug. 12, 2015 - Ebert's Greenhouse Village

Voted "Best Green Thumb Paradise," I'm very excited to be working with Ebert's Greenhouse Village this year in Wisconsin!  If you haven't checked Ebert's out yet, I hope you do. It's located just past Oconomowoc in Ixonia and truly is a destination to experience.  You'll be amazed by their selection of gorgeous plants grown right in their own greenhouses (38 greenhouses and over 150,000 square feet of growing space!) as well as their unique garden accents. Plus, they offer wonderful family events in addition to special events, like Ladies Night Out (I'm looking forward to this one!), throughout the season. It's a gardener's dream to check out this season!

I'll be presenting at Ebert's on the following dates. The seminars are free & open to the public - no registration required.  Plus, be sure to enter to Win a $500 Ebert's Shopping Spree with me between April 25–May 23. I'm looking forward to helping the winner select plants and products that will help them achieve their gardening goals this season, including insight on which plants and shrubs will flourish best in their growing conditions and answer any of the winner's lawn and garden questions.
