Spring Affair, the Midwest’s largest gardening event, will be Saturday, April 25 of 2015.
It will be held at the Lancaster Event Center from 9-2 p.m. More than 500 different varieties of plants will be offered at the day-long plant sale, with educational talks, “talk-abouts” and garden vendors all under the same roof.
Plants are selected for regional suitability, uniqueness and demand and are provided by Bluebird Nursery, Inc. of Clarkson, NE. Gardeners will find perennials, herbs, native plants, temperennials, vines and a variety of trees and shrubs—something for everyone.
Admission to the sale is free. The plant sale, plant talks and vendors of garden art, sculptures, furniture and other items are all under one roof in Pavilion I, on the northeast edge of the Lancaster Event Center. Plenty of parking is available just north of the building.
Throughout the day, “Talk-about” speakers will wend their way through the plant sale discussing topics ranging from using herbs to composting.
