The Idaho State Department of Agriculture’s Idaho Preferred Program is celebrating the start of the planting season and Idaho-grown nursery products with the 2018 Spring Nursery Retail Road Show. The Road Show will promote locally grown plants, trees, flowers and other nursery products. Events will take place from April 28 through May 18 with stops at Idaho Preferred member retail nurseries across the state.  


Road Show stops in the Treasure Valley will give shoppers opportunities to participate in planting events, take advantage of special pricing, and talk with experts to learn more about planting locally grown nursery products in yards and gardens.




Support local Idaho growers!

“We want to raise awareness that local nurseries grow a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs that can thrive in Idaho’s soils and climate,” said Leah Clark, Idaho Preferred Program manager. “When you buy local nursery products, you’re supporting the local economy plus you know the plants are better able to flourish in your yard and garden. Our local growers and retailers are experts in their field and understand that soil conditions vary greatly throughout Idaho. Look for the Idaho Preferred logo to find nursery products grown in Idaho.”


Representatives from Idaho Preferred will be available for interviews and inquiries: Leah Clark, Idaho Preferred Program manager, leah.clark@isda.idaho.gov, (208) 332-8684 or Megan Harper, Idaho Preferred commerce development analyst, megan.harper@isda.idaho.gov .
