Spring Garden Festival

March 14-15, San Diego Botanic Garden’s new Spring Garden Festival and Tomatomania! features a wide variety of herbs, spring plants, bromeliads, garden art, and tomatoes. Garden experts will be on hand to answer questions and provide helpful advice on spring plantings and caring for your entire garden. Enjoy food from Divine Fresh, musical entertainment from Bob Ballentine and friends, and a petting zoo and pony rides for the kids. Special guest speaker is Scott Daigre, an avid gardener, sometimes farmer, enthusiastic landscape designer/owner of Powerplant Garden Design, and producer of Tomatomania! Daigre’s new book will teach a thing or two about growing tomatoes. Attendance is free with admission or membership. (760.436.3036, www.sdbgarden.org)
