Spring is just around the corner! You can feel it with that final bit of cold from Winter, looking to extend its life a little longer. But Spring always wins and with it comes forth the blossoms and blooms of cherry trees, of tulips, of roses, and all other flora and fauna. Truly, there is nothing quite as glamorous and amazing as Springtime in Portland; what better way to celebrate the coming Spring than by attending Portland’s Yard, Garden and Patio show, sponsored by Dennis’ 7 Dees.
Running from Feb 27- March 1st at the Oregon Convention Center, the Portland Yard, Garden and Patio is the largest consumer gardening of it’s kind. It’s always a personal highlight for myself and my green thumbed wife. It’s the unofficial launch of spring in Portland and it’s where my wife loads up the family SUV with flowers, pots and tools that will beautify our home for the next seven months.
“The Yard, Garden & Patio Show was founded in 1988 by the Oregon Association of Nurseries as a way to highlight the significant accomplishments of its retail and landscape members. It also provided a forum for the gardening public to experience what’s new in the bright, beautiful world of ornamental plant material, as well as to learn new skills and techniques from gardening experts worldwide.”
The Yard, Garden & Patio show at Portland, Oregon’s Convention center provides everything from gardening tips to supplies and even lectures by horticulture experts from around the world. But even if you don’t have a green thumb, the show has numerous gardening displays, featuring dazzling beauty and pleasing aromas. The show can please the hobbyist to the professional horticulturalist alike.
For this year’s festival, my wife took some classes on building your own greenhouses and aeration. She wants to grow tomatoes year round and wants lettuce as moist and juicy as what you can get at your local Whole Foods of farmers market. Of course, more than fruits and veggies, I’ll look forward to whatever tremendous flowers she brings home. If not for her, and if not for some help from the Yard, Garden and Patio Show in Portland, Oregon, our palates and home might be a little more plain.
