of Plants, Garden Treasures, and Experts’ Advice in Time for Fall Planting
WINTERTHUR, Del., Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ — Winterthur Museum & Country Estate and Horticulture magazine team up for the second GardenFair, an autumn plant, tool, and antique sale and event offering everything for the great American garden, from September 16 to 18.
GardenFair features 60 specialty nurseries and garden-related exhibitors, demonstrations, lectures, and more. See http://www.winterthur.org/.
Exhibitors come from across the country, and will offer everything from ornamental grasses, premium perennials, and aquatic plants to antique European garden furniture, garden tools, jewelry, and art. GardenFair is sponsored by DuPont(TM) GreenVista(TM) garden products.
“This event features dozens of destination nurseries in one location,” said Trish Wesley Umbrell, editorial director of Horticulture, America’s gardening magazine. “These are the nurseries whose catalogues you covet and whose selections you’ve dreamed of seeing firsthand. And they’re all at GardenFair.”
“GardenFair offers something for everyone – a gardener with a shady yard, an apartment dweller with a sunny deck or window box, or a beginner who’s just starting,” said Chris Strand, director of Winterthur’s garden and estate. “The exhibitors love to offer advice about their wares and educate people about their gardening passions.”
Tips on shade gardening, tool selection, water gardening, and orchid care are among the topics that will be discussed during free educational demonstrations, which take place on the hour from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day of GardenFair. Exhibitors and Winterthur’s horticultural staff will discuss a variety of topics geared to beginning/intermediate gardeners. A question and answer panel featuring experts on several garden topics takes place on Sunday afternoon from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
