Vendors from far and wide – from nearly the Canadian border to the California border – will be in 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! This year they're offering the "Grow With Us Lecture Series". Hortlandia will be held from April 20 - 21 at the Portland Expo Center: 2060 N. marine Dr. in Portland. Time are 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Visit www.hardyplantsociety.org.
