This event is open to both HPSO members and non-members, and admission is FREE.
If you sign up for a new HPSO membership from March 1 (http://www.hardyplantsociety.org/join-the-hardy-plant-society) right up until the event itself you'll get $10 off your plant purchases!
In April of every year, HPSO sponsors an event that is one of the largest of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. Vendors from far and wide – from nearly the Canadian border to the California border – come to Portland to offer the latest plant introductions as well as the time-tested (and hardiness-tested!) plants. Complementing the plant vendors are specialty garden art vendors bringing one-of-a-kind pieces made from metal, wood, glass, ceramic, fabric, and stone. Each work of art is handcrafted by the vendor. This is a wonderful event, and it's particularly nice to have so many nurseries and artists, with so many plant choices and specialty works, all under one roof!
A few things to keep in mind: No pets, wagons, strollers or carts are permitted inside the building. HPSO will make reasonable accommodation or will provide assistance for people with disabilities. Please contact the HPSO office in advance so arrangements can be made, and let one of our Greeters at the entrance know if you require assistance.
