The promise of spring becomes that much more real when you actually do something about it – get rid of clutter, start poking around in your garden. The 2004 Tacoma Home and Garden Show, which runs through Sunday, Feb. 1, helps you get your blooms in order.

Local experts from throughout the state, including popular favorites such as Ciscoe Morris, Marty Wingate, Ed Hume and others, will be sharing tips, tricks and advice on home and gardening topics at continuous seminars throughout the show. WSU-Pierce County Master Gardeners and Cooperative Extension volunteers mark their third decade of serving the community. They’ll give seminars and various gardening subjects – for children and adults – at several “hands-on” exhibits.
