What price would you pay for admission?
I read in the local paper today that some tickets to the Super Bowl will go for as high as $7,000. One Colts season ticket holder, lucky enough to win a lottery drawing of all season ticket holders, paid a face value of $1,220 for two tickets. He still has to get to Miami, get a hotel room, buy food, rent a car, and of course, buy the t-shirt. That’s a lot of seed and plant money!
So what price would you pay to attend a “horticultural symposium”? Symposium sounds pretty high-brow, doesn’t it? There is such an event coming to my city. The overall topic is “Harmonious Planting Design” and featured speakers include Craig Bergmann, C. Colston Burrell, Kathy Tracey and Keith Wiley. Price of admission? $119. Lunch included!
I went to this event last year, and actually wrote one of my earliest blog posts about it. Gosh, after reading it, I sure sound like I enjoyed the day. And I did! But now I am wonder if it is worth going again.
Has anyone heard any of these people speak before? Would they be worth the price of admission? Or should I save my money and buy more seeds and plants this spring? I have just a few days to decide.
