Experts will speak on such topics as garden diseases, drought-tolerant native plants and mountain plant folklore. Local nursery owners and landscapers will provide exhibits. And the Blairsville Garden Club will again sponsor the annual plant sale.
The event will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. Homemade cookies and coffee will be served starting at 9 a.m. for those who want to come early, see the landscape exhibits and talk with local nursery owners and horticulturists.
The $20 preregistration fee (it's $25 at the door) includes a box lunch. Seating is limited. To learn more, call the North Georgia Research and Education Center at (706) 745-2655.
