Gardening Events

Find out what’s happening in gardens and gardening across the Mid-Atlantic region. Use the Mid-Atlantic Gardener calendar of gardening events as a free and simple way to locate gardening exhibits, tours, seminars, workshops, classes, conferences, lectures, shows and expos in Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Regularly updated, continually growing, and free to post and use!



The Mid-Atlantic Gardener blog provides a regular flow of gardening news from our region’s Cooperative Extension offices and other groups, plus how-to tips, native plant spotlights, best practices for sustainable landscape design and management, guest bloggers, and much more.


Conserve water in yard

Learning great gardening skills from the start.


Mid-Atlantic Gardener regularly reviews information published by our region’s Cooperative Extension Offices at Virginia Tech, Penn State, University of Maryland, University of Delaware, University of the District of Columbia, and Rutgers and other state and local horticulture and gardening organizations.

We select resources that we believe are especially useful and relevant to our readers’ interests and needs. And we maintain a free, easy-to-use clearinghouse of links to free gardening resources – tutorials, articles, fact sheets, videos, booklets, tip sheets and checklists – from Mid-Atlantic region experts.

Visit Gardens

A large part of the mission of Mid-Atlantic Gardener is encourage more people to support and visit gardens in the Mid-Atlantic region. So we created and maintain a continually growing gallery of gardens in the Mid-Atlantic region, with profiles of several of those that are open to the public.
