Just wanted to remind you of the upcoming Tampa Spring Expo. This will take place at the State Fair Grounds in Tampa on February 19 and 20. This is a good time to try and drum up some sales, catch up on all the latest happenings with your fellow industry members, and share some camaraderie with your friends.
For having fun, before the Expo there will be the event Birds and Birdies which are independent golf and shooting events.
For educaton there will be the Tree and Landscape Short Course on the 19th. With good information on irrigation, landscaping, and core topics. Here is the brochure if you would like more information:http://prohort.ifas.ufl.edu/events/CalendarPubs/TLSC_Brochure.PDF This course will take place at the Trinkle Center.
The event will also culminate with the plant auction on the 20th before the trade show ends. Any participants can donate their booth to the TBWG and we will auction it off. It is a great chance to purchase plants at deep discounts. This is a great opportunity for landscapers and retailers! The money raised will be donated to the Hillsborough County Environmental Horticulture Extension Program as well as research in Env. Hort. at UF.
