The Show Book for the 2016 State Fair is ready. Printed copies will be distributed at the picnic after the garden tour, next Sunday the 21st. But in the meantime you can download a PDF version from here.
The Dahlia Trial Garden at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum will be planted with tubers on May 21, 2016. (In case of rain, planting will be on May 28, 2016 instead). Volunteers are requested at 9:00 a.m. There will be 15 varieties planted. Members are encouraged to sign up for volunteer work at the garden during the summer. We will be posting a sign up schedule soon.
This year’s garden tour and picnic started in Edina and wound up in Apple Valley, but wrapped up early due to threat of storms. There were 3 gardens and was fun. State Fair Show packets (including parking passes) and Fall Show books were distributed at the picnic. See photos.
