Michael Russo Sunday 12-1 Cutting Gardens for the Home Gardener Participants will learn the essential requirements of starting an environmentally friendly four season, productive, home cutting garden; suggestions for personal favorite varieties, pest management, seed and plant resources will be covered

Michael is flower farmer, Master Gardener and floral designer with over a decade of experience , who embraces the “slow flower” philosophy, which uses low environmental impact cultivation methods and organic practices for growing and uses that same approach in my design work. . At Trout Lily Farm, we intensively grow 50 + varieties of shrubs, vines, annuals, perennials, bulbs and herbs on a 1 acre parcel and then incorporate the organically grown bounty into my design work for the home, weddings and events. I have worked for Martha Stewart Living, lending my collection of Victorian Language of Flowers books for a “Romantic Wedding Issue”, and did a segment on that topic for her television show. Although Trout Lily Farm operates at a larger, production scale, I am mindful of the needs and dreams of the home gardener , and happily share suggestions, resources and first hand knowledge of how to grow, maintain and enjoy a healthy, productive, bountiful and beautiful small garden at home.

Danielle Colby of American Pickers to Appear at 2020 CT Home Show 

Tiny Homes, Solar Power, She Sheds, #trendingnow Vendors Draw Attendees by the Thousands 

East Hampton, CT— January 31, 2020Danielle Colby, best known as the Shop Manager on History Channel’s American Pickers, will be appearing at the 39th Annual Southeastern Connecticut Home and Garden Show.  For the second year in a row, the massive home and garden expo will be filling the Convention Center at Mohegan Sun.  “The decision to move the show to Mohegan Sun was made to accommodate the growth we have experienced.  Casino shows have an exceptionally high turnout. The convention center name- The Earth Expo and Convention Center literally speaks to our new brand- Southeastern Home and Garden Show. We added the Garden category because we are acknowledging todays’ trend in garden and landscape beautification to residential properties.  Modern homeowners have always used a variety of exterior contractors for services ranging from pool installation, masonry, siding, paving, lawncare, irrigation, fencing and the like.  However, the next generation of homeowners take it a step further.  You will see displays and presentations for outdoor fireplaces, firepits, the infamous she sheds- made popular by Allstate commercials and Tiny Homes- made popular by cable television and social media” said owner Wes Jenks. This year’s show offers a plethora of vendors representing both interior home contractors and exterior home services.  Among them are window installation companies, roofing contractors, kitchen and bath designers, overhead doors, furniture, painters, marble, granite and masonry, pools, landscapers, tree services and more.  Home improvement trade shows and expos still prevail as a dominant way to introduce new trends, speak directly to consumers and expand your customer base.

Industry Trends Dominate 

Dennis Jenks, who founded Jenks Productions forty years ago when he produced his first home show and energy show, marvels at the growth that home show expos have seen.  “Gone are the days of formal entertaining in the living room, or parlor.  Our attendees come in with awesome design ideas to take down walls, create open floor plans, install hearths, kitchen islands and other interior features that draw the family and guests together while eating or entertaining.  I really wanted to add the word Garden to the title of the show to demonstrate our commitment to exterior beautification and our speaker list reflects this.  We have numerous experts lecturing on gardening, horticulture, landscaping, butterflies and the importance of bees. As far as our vendors, they go to great lengths to bring in incredible displays.  They are the best of the best at what they do- and they prove it at this show. They devote hours to create booths that appeal to all the senses. These vendors know that it isn’t just about home maintenance and restoration any more, it’s about NEW installations, NEW ideas, NEW designs, NEW products and contemporary design concepts.  My promise to you: attendees, vendors and the media will see ALL of this and more at this year’s show,” said Dennis.

Tickets to the show are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and children 12 and under are FREE.  The show is conveniently located at Earth Expo & Convention Center at Mohegan Sun, 1 Mohegan Sun Boulevard, Uncasville, CT.  Tickets can be purchased online by visiting the Southeastern Home & Garden Show page of the Jenks Productions website.  You can also purchase tickets at the show entrance. Parking is FREE.
