Along with everything coming up out of the ground, spring plant and garden events proliferate: orchids, houseplants, plant sales and antiques, Amy Stewart, gardening in our changing climate - the cherry blossoms!
You'll find a good list after the jump to begin the season:

Amy Stewart will be speaking at the NYBG!
