Cape Fear Community College. Being at this venue means more space for over fifty exhibitors that will bring us the first look at products and services for the upcoming spring gardening season. This year the Garden Show is truly a one-stop event-it's where the public can find a hint of spring in the displays, the plants and decorative items. In addition, attendees can save time, money and gas by coming to the one event where they will see gardening products, gain information face to face with experts and listen to informative and interesting talks on a variety of topics. Returning favorites as well as new vendors will be on hand for the event. We’re sure there will be something to tempt home gardeners in the Wilmington area.
