Members of the Aiken Garden Club Council and local specialty garden clubs are expected to bring their gardening experience to the first Gardener’s Bonanza on Saturday.


The event will be held at the Aiken County Historical Museum, 433 Newberry St. S.W., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


This free public event will feature presentations by experienced local growers of camellias, orchids and roses, as well as Ikebana flower arranging demonstrations, all on the half-hour starting at 10:30 a.m. in the parlor.


The Aiken Master Gardeners will be present to answer questions about lawn and other garden plants. There will be plants dug from local gardens or propagated by hands-on gardeners. Not only will they be for sale to benefit the clubs’ community projects, there will also be information provided on how to grow them successfully.


Also available on Saturday will be garden-related items such as house plants, bird houses, note cards, homemade garden decorations, clay pots, garden books, floral design necessities, shabby chic garden items, old garden tools and more. For more information on this event, call 803-643-9542.
