Tomorrow morning registration begins for the 2019 Horticulture Industry Show in Fayetteville at the Chancellor Hotel which is on the square.  The full schedule for all sessions can be found at: https://www.hortindustriesshow.org/blank and you can register at the door.

This is an excellent way to kick off the gardening season with some outstanding educational sessions.  The keynote address is at 9:00 a.m. and will cover pollinators and what they do for you and how to save them.

Today there was a pre-event at the UA Farm on high tunnels.  Led by UA Fruit and Veg specialist Amanda McWhirt, high tunnel workshop.jan.3 (13)they had a large crowd in spite of the gloomy and cold temperatures–but the rain did hold off.  They discussed the different types of high tunnels, and discussed growing vegetables, strawberries and grapes in high tunnels.  Very informative.  high tunnel workshop.jan.3 (4)high tunnel workshop.jan.3 (6)high tunnel workshop.jan.3 (8)high tunnel workshop.jan.3 (11)high tunnel workshop.jan.3 (12)

Since we arrived early we had time to get a plant fix at the local Westwood Nursery.  They still have pansies and spring blooming bulbs, along with some beautiful winter blooming shrubs from mahonia, to camellias and more.  mahonia.westwood.jan19pansies jan (1)spring bulbs (2)
