MANTS Overboard!




MANTS takes place this week in Baltimore and if you are at all involved in horticulture in the Mid-Atlantic region, you are already there. Thanks to Ryan McGrath at Spring Meadows Nursery (aka Proven Winners) for hosting us at lunch (pictured at left). Here are a few highlight pics from today.

It might be a good thing I can't make it this week. I would spend my entire paycheck on that seed rack!

Yes, Kenneth, it is easy to let your buying get out of control esp at wholesale prices!

You're welcome, Amanda - if you go, be sure to were comfy shoes!

I wish this was open to the public. I drove by yesterday and was very jealous. Maybe you could raffle off a ticket next year.

Hi RB -
Even though this is a trade event, I see many non-business folk paying their $15 and going in. Not Sure MANTS wants me to really publicize that fact...
