One of our fantastic vendors, Hillbilly Farms, has added a special event to their booth and we could not be more excited! Stop by their booth and sign your child up to feed a baby goat! Get it? Kids feeding… Kids?? Is there anything better than baby goats? Human kids should be signed up and ready to feed the goat kids during their scheduled feeding times. It’s first come, first served, and a great opportunity to learn about these adorable babies. And yes, it really is only for kids. We adults were disappointed, too.

We’ve been introducing you to vendors that will be at our Garden Success Show, so we thought we would take a moment to introduce you to two of the driving forces behind the very show we are celebrating!
Mike Spencer and Susan Spencer are behind our incredible Garden Success Show, so we invited them to sit down and talk with us! Mike and Susan have over 50 years combined experience in the nursery business. When they developed the Garden Success Show, the intent was to facilitate direct contact between vendors and customers. “We really want to give the customer a chance to interact with our vendors. To ask questions and learn from the source,” says Mike. It comes as no surprise that they both have favorite things about the show. For Susan, it’s a chance to bring in the new products for the season, and set up the season for success. With the upcoming season, we wondered what Mike and Susan are most looking forward to. Susan: “I’m most looking forward to a fresh start, better weather and I truly feel like product-wise, this is our best year yet. We are excited!”
Mike: “For me, I’m most looking forward to our new varieties of tub geraniums. We offer unparalleled quality and geraniums that no other nurseries have, so a chance to showcase those is what I’m excited about.”
Be sure to stop by the show and say hello to Mike and Susan. They look forward to seeing you!
Spencer’s 21st annual Garden Success Show!

Dave is another returning vendor at our Garden Success Show. He represents Lake Valley and Botanical Interests seed companies. Dave loves to grow anything he can use to make salsa or pickles! His main focus in the 12 years he’s been in the business is to grow plants starting from the soil up. Stop by his booth to learn more about cover crops and micro greens, how to attract beneficial insects, and what to plant for bees and butterflies.
Daniel will be at our Garden Success Show representing VPG, who supplies our Ferti-lome, Natural Guard, and Hi-Yield products. He’s been in the garden industry nearly 20 years! If there’s a insect or fungus you’ve come across in your own garden, he’s most likely dealt with it and can recommend the exact product you need. Daniel is very excited to share some new items including an incredibly effective Spinosad Soap and a Liquid Humate. Of all the things he’s grown, he’s most proud of his lawn.
Chris and Tammi Hartung are familiar faces at our Garden Show. They own Desert Canyon Farms where they’ve grown certified organic herbs and vegetables since 1996! Chris and Tammi love to share their knowledge on how to grow and use their plants for ornamental, culinary, and medicinal purposes. Tammi especially loves to grow poppies. Come check out Tammi’s seminar on Saturday covering information from her new book “Cattail Moonshine & Milkweed Medicine” or stop by their booth to get answers to your questions.
The weather isn’t holding us back from getting in products for Spring! We are steadily receiving shipments and our shelves are filling up! Stop in to see the newest and best of our Dramm Professional Watering Tools, new sizes and colors of watering cans, and the Earth BOX line!
We’d like you to meet Tim! He will be at our Garden Success Show representing Smart Pots and Big Bag Beds. Stop by his booth to learn about the many benefits of these special fabric containers including air pruning and heat release. Tim is most excited to share the new soaker hoses designed to fit in all three sizes of the Big Bag Beds that will make watering a breeze for you!
