Other speakers will discuss plants native to Idaho, creativity in garden design, and iris breeding. Get your thirty bucks to them by March 1st. Sounds like you won’t regret it.

In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
