Minnesota Home and Patio Show Speakers

MSHS is happy to once again host the garden speakers at the Minnesota Home and Patio Show, which begins Thursday and runs through Sunday at the St. Paul River Center in downtown St. Paul. From beekeeping to urban gardening to peonies, we’ve got an exciting and informative list of speakers.

Renegade Gardener Don Engebretson will be one of the speakers at the Minnesota Home and Patio Show this weekend!

After attending one of the talks, be sure to stop by our booth. We’ll have books from many of the speakers as well as MSHS bulbs, garden tools and other useful items for gardeners. We look forward to seeing you at the show!
