I am going this morning with a gardening buddy who is visiting from the NC mountains.I will post after I return to let you know if it is worth the trip.It is about 1 and a half hours drive for me.

By the way,the festival was worth the drive.There were mostly commercial growers but I met a woman with a one gal operation.She had very special small plants at great prices.She only sells at plant shows and is located West of Colombia.She is just the kind of grower I am looking for.

I also picked up plugs of some other plants not available locally.Even with the high price of gas,it was worth going.
