April is a great month. It welcomes back the return of birds, the emergence of the first flowers and of course the long-awaited unfurling of a new season’s leaves. Bring on Spring!
You know what the return of spring means, don’t you? It means that the 39th Annual London Spring Home and Garden Show is right around the corner! And of course CLC Tree Services will be there.
This year’s show runs from April 10th – 12th, 2015. Hours will be 12-9 pm on Friday, 11 am-8 pm Saturday, and Sunday 11 am-5 pm. General tickets cost $12, seniors are $9 and children under age 12 are FREE. Plus, if you need to return to see more of the show or to make a purchase, you can also return for free.
So what do you have to look forward to at this year’s show, you wonder? Well, you get the chance to meet some of the CLC Tree Services team at booths 705 and 706 of course. But there are a few other people to see as well, like Nicholas Rosaci (DIY GUY for Cityline and Dabble Magazine), Kathy van Gogh (from van Gogh Furniture Paintology), Sara Collins (Colour Expert for Color Company Decorating Centre), and Ben Porchuk (Ecologist & Native Plant Expert).
Plus don’t forget to visit the stages found throughout the Western Fair Agriplex building. You might learn something at one of the shows on the Ideas Stage, Gardening Stage or at Porky’s Grilling School. Be sure to stop and smell the flowers at the Spring Flower Show and Competition too. And don’t forget your wallet for the Home and Garden Marketplace. It is always full of amazing deals! Plus, you can get a head start on your spring planting by stopping by the Home and Garden Plant Sale, sponsored by Baseline Nurseries. If you are looking for freebies though, don’t forget to bring a pen to enter a ballot to win 1 of 10 great prizes.
A special treat this year will be some cool demonstrations by area chainsaw carver Ted Hayes. Not only is he a local—he’s a graduate of Beal and Fanshawe College of Arts program—he has also contributed to the London Tree Trunk Tour. And he’ll be there carving all three days of the show just outside the main entrance! You can’t miss him.
We hope to see you there!
