Mants is the MidAtlantic Nursery Trade Show. It's in Baltimore at the Inner Harbor from today, until this Friday. Many of the retail garden centers will make their spring buys from vendors that attend. There are usually, nurseries, local, regional and nationwide, paver manufacturers, equipment dealers, container manufacturers and importers along with garden art, seed suppliers and almost anyone else in the green industry.
Friday is a short day, it closes at 2pm, but we never make it back inside after a late lunch, anyway.
