GRAND FORKS—The weather may not show it, but gardening season is just around the corner.

On Saturday at the Alerus Center, anyone with a green thumb could go to Gardening Saturday to hear from speakers and learn new tricks.

Speakers throughout the afternoon expanded on shade gardening, landscaping and even wine making.

Gardening Saturday is hosted specifically so gardeners can start preparing for the upcoming season.

"I just encourage everyone to have patience cause everybody's going to want to get in the ground, but we still have to wait for the ground to warm up and dry out before we can start working in the lawns and in the garden beds," said Carrie Knutson, NDSU Extension Service.

Over 300 people were at the event.

Vendors were also there selling everything garden related.
