March is a special time of the year for all of us. Temperatures are cool and comfortable, the soil is warming up and new growth and blooms are beginning everywhere. To begin this spring season there are several Spring Garden Shows being offered in Louisiana and Mississippi; some are not far from us here in St. Tammany Parish.

There are many plants, plant products and knowledgeable people at these shows. As you make plans for your home grounds and gardens, consider attending some of these shows for the best plants, best prices and best advice for your spring gardens.
