This annual show features horticultural exhibits, plant sales, and a variety of educational speakers. There's also a special area just for kids.

Speakers on April 6 will include Dan Gill, LSU AgCenter horticulturist, at 11:30 a.m. presenting summer flowering vines. Patrick O’Connor with Zydeco Irises and the Louisiana Iris Society will present Louisiana Irises:  A Native Plant Returns Home at 1p.m., and Andrew Loyd, LSU AgCenter Orleans Parish horticulture agent, will discuss common diseases of the home vegetable garden at 2:30 p.m.

Speakers on April 7 will include Regina Bracy, resident coordinator at the LSU AgCenter Hammond Research Station at 11:30 a.m., presenting Louisiana Super Plants. Tammany Baumgarden, Louisiana Master Gardener of Greater New Orleans, will present the cottage garden at 1 p.m., and Amber Parker, also a Louisiana Master Gardener of Greater New Orleans, will discuss the natural edible garden at 2:30 p.m.
Master Gardeners and LSU AgCenter horticulture experts will be available to answer questions from homeowners, who also may bring soil samples for analysis by the LSU AgCenter's Soil Testing Lab. The cost for each one-pint soil sample is $10, payable by check or money order.

The “Plant Doctor” Nick Singh from the LSU AgCenter Plant Diagnostic Center also will be on hand to answer questions about plant disease and insect and weed problems.       
As with past shows, exhibits and sales booths will be featured throughout the garden. Arts and crafts vendors will be in the azalea garden with items for sale. And again this year, 4-H members will be helping in the kids’ discovery area.
