Plant Nerd Night

March 5 @ 2:00 pm

Plant Nerd Night

Plant Nerd Night is returning for 2023 with a new venue, a new day of the week, a new time — but one thing isn’t changing.

“The name Plant Nerd Night is staying, even though it is in the afternoon,” head plant nerd Mike Darcy said.

The annual tradition, where specialty growers give fun presentations on interesting and unusual plants, will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 5 at Lake Oswego High School Auditorium, 2501 Country Club Road, Lake Oswego, Oregon. Doors will open at 1 p.m. and those interested should line up ahead of time to be assured of a seat. The auditorium seats 640. That’s a little more than the prior venue, which seated 500 and was always full. Admission is free. Participants get a goody bag that includes a FREE Retail Nurseries and Garden Centers Map, courtesy of Plant Something Oregon and the Oregon Association of Nurseries.

The event is produced by Darcy in cooperation with the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon. “Without their cooperation and support, Plant Nerd Night would never happen,” Darcy said. Plant Something Oregon is on board as a sponsor of the event.

The event didn’t happen in 2021 or 2022 due to COVID-related restrictions. Organizers managed to pull it off in 2020 before COVID restrictions really took hold. The 2023 edition will mark the 20th anniversary of the event.
