In addition to presentations, guests can indulge their passion at the SGS Marketplace offering one-stop shopping for the gardener.  You’ll find an assortment of choice plants, many of which are touted by Symposium speakers as the new “must-haves”; a superb book selection including new releases by SGS speakers, who will be available for autographing; and a delightful array of garden ornaments.

SGS participants will have an exciting opportunity to participate in both silent and live auctions.  The auction items include books and plants recommended by speakers; tours of private gardens; garden ornaments; botanical artwork by the late Athos Menaboni; special plants; items contributed by Marketplace vendors, speakers and much more.

Preregistration for SGS is required by Friday, Jan. 16, 2015.  The program registration fee of $259 includes Friday’s opening reception; Saturday’s continental breakfast, programs with printed materials, box lunch and evening banquet; and Sunday’s continental breakfast and programs with printed materials.
