Sneak Peek

Random Acts of Gardening readers got a sneak peek at the construction of the Yard, Garden & Patio Show (YGP) display gardens on Wednesday, Feb. 10, two days before the show opened. Autumn Leaf Landscaping, Green Leaf Design, LLC and the Dennis’ 7 Dees Landscaping & Garden Centers’ crew talked to the group about their design concepts and display garden construction challenges. Allan Niemi, OAN director of events and education, and Brian Bauman, Bauman Farms and chair of the YGP volunteer committee, shared information about the production of the event. A drawing for several new-to-the-market plants topped off the RAG event. We hope to plan a tour of a wholesale or specialty nursery during the summer months so stay tuned.
