ABINGDON, Va. -

The Abingdon Garden Faire is in full swing at the Higher Education Center.
 
This year marks the 17th year for the annual Mid-Atlantic Garden Faire.

The event continues through Sunday.

If it has to do with growing things or gardening, it's at the event.  There are also special presentations and programs for the home gardener.

"It's the time that everybody wants to get out and start planting," said Master Gardener volunteer Sue Slack. "It's finally warm and beautiful. We're just about past that frost date so if you buy things today you won't have to held them very long before you got to plant them."

The Garden Faire is at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon and will continue through Sunday.

We invite you to post your pictures of the event on our Facebook page.
