We have the perfect antidote to wet, snowy weather. Come to our 20th Annual March Into Spring, A Symposium for Gardeners. Join us for a delightful day filled with plants and cultivation tips. Learn from experts who know and garden in this area, with topics ranging from great native plants, Hydrangeas, Clematis, and new and interesting small trees. Then on to design - it's all in the details. Learn how to create the garden of your dreams that reveals itself to be more beautiful the more time one spends looking.
Our stellar speakers include George Cooms, Mt. Cuba Center; Eric Hsu and Emma Seniuk, Chanticleer Garden; Adam Glas, The Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College; and Heidi Hesselein, Pleasant Run Nursery.
Not to be missed: Our carefully curated selection of the best new garden books (at discount prices), our awesome Silent Auction, and shopping with RareFind Nursery, Gettysburg Gardens, Cairnsgrove Gardens & Apiary, and The Native Yard. Bring cash and checks; not all vendors can accept credit cards. We hope to see you there!

The Hardy Plant Society/Mid-Atlantic Group (HPS/MAG)
We are a not-for-profit volunteer organization for gardeners in the Mid-Atlantic region. We encourage gardeners - from beginners to professionals - to learn more about horticulture and to share their skills, knowledge, and plants with each other. Members gather throughout the year to visit gardens and nurseries in the Delaware Valley. We sponsor plant sales, trips, seminars, and lectures about plants, ecology, design, propagation, and conservation.
