Gardeners can't ever buy enough high-quality, interesting plants and all manner of related stuff, which is one of many reasons to head for the fourth annual GardenFair at Winterthur this weekend.
Seventy plant and garden exhibitors from 15 states will be selling everything from tools and outdoor furniture to herbs and trees. Free gardening lectures, how-to demonstrations, and workshops also run throughout the fair.
Hank Schannen, owner of Rare Find Nursery in Jackson, N.J., in the northwestern tip of the Pine Barrens, is a GardenFair veteran. He'll literally be selling truckloads of Japanese maples, dogwoods and magnolias, viburnums and summersweets (Clethra alnifolia), echinaceas and clematis, and a favorite new hybrid Calacanthus.
