Shows & Events
Memphis has long been a center of interest in the ancient art of bonsai, so the Memphis Bonsai Society's Annual Show and Sale is among the region's best. This year's event will take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 12 and 13, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Memphis Botanical Garden, 705 Cherry Road, in Memphis, Tennessee. For more information, call (901) 685-1566, ext. 110.
It's the season for sharing, when gardeners swap and share the riches dug from their own garden. For an in-depth look at the South's most beloved heirlooms, I love Passalong Plants, by Steve Bender and Felder Rushing (University of North Carolina Press, 1993; $18). They feature all the best plants to share with your friends and neighbors and how to do it successfully.
