Gardening Show returns to Porter County

Although winter is still here, gardening fans will want to look ahead and plan for the upcoming growing season in the Region.

And they can do so at the 17th annual Gardening Show on Jan. 21 at the Porter County Expo Center in Valparaiso.

“We are so excited to have the show again,” said LuAnn Troxel, publicity chairwoman of the show. “We missed two years,” she said, referring to the halt of the event due to the pandemic.

Troxel said there will be many features and activities to engage the public at the event. Everything from plant and gardening supply sales to presentations, demos and a seed exchange will be in the spotlight. There are more than 120 vendors participating in the show.

“It’s not a lot different from previous shows,” she said adding they’ve listened to feedback from past show attendees about what they loved seeing at the event.
