By for CAES News

The Georgia Mountains Master Gardeners will present their annual garden expo May 15 and 16 at Hancock Park in Dahlonega, Ga. The expo will be held in conjunction with the Mountain Flower Arts Festival.

Events both days will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. The expo will include a plant sale, plant clinics, demonstrations, instructional programs, wildflower walks and children’s activities. Several participants will make their own hypertufa planter, perfect for creating a container gardens.

Area master gardeners have been busy potting local plants, so expect a large selection of native materials for the sale. The wildflower walks will showcase the new Yahoola Park Trail which includes scenes of native flowers as well as some original gold mines.
