Established in 1866, the Minnesota State Horticultural Society (MSHS) is one of the country's oldest horticultural societies. Gardening in the North can be challenging, and we seek to help new and experienced gardeners alike have positive experiences with plants and success in their gardens.

Moving water, trees, open spaces and large boulders are more than just a nice looking way to landscape. When combined, these elements create a feeling of peace, tranquility and happiness. Our goal for the Garden Theater was to use these elements to create an intimate setting for the many fascinating speakers at the show, providing the feeling of being outside in a relaxing setting, no matter where you are.
