Gardens showcasing inventive planting placements, water features and inviting hardscape will be on display at the 35th Annual Lane County Home and Garden Show through Sunday at the Lane County Fairgrounds.

Each night, only festival lights in rafters will be used so that the landscapers can demonstrate night lighting in the landscape, setting the stage for a garden party, the show’s theme this year.
Admission is free and so are 50 seminars by national garden writers and local garden gurus including John Fischer, aka “The Relaxed Gardener,” and Jackie Chama, “Bloomers Green Thumb.”
