There will be garden tours starting every 30 minutes starting at 10 a.m. The how-to seminars start at the top of the hour and will cover numerous topics from planning and renovating landscapes for low-water use to turfgrasses.
Vendors will be selling plants, irrigation equipment and gardening supplies.
Gardening and landscaping experts from Colorado State University, Larimer County Master Gardeners and several other organizations will provide information on gardening, landscape design and irrigation.
The first 400 fair attendees will receive a free Plant Select perennial. A limited number of free sub sandwiches will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Young gardeners will enjoy the children’s potting bench, the rain maker target shoot and other kids’ activities.
