Do you have plant questions?  The DuPage County Master Gardener’s will have a “Master Gardener Help Desk” set up at the greenhouse the day of the festival!  Their knowledge can help you to produce even more beautiful blooms!  They are also experts on Monarchs, so tap into their knowledge about the best plants to select for next year’s garden.
