Between August 18th and 20th hundreds of gardeners from independent garden centers and nurseries will descend on Navy Pier in Chicago for the annual Independent Garden Center Show. Here, they’ll check out new products, systems, and services as well as see acres and acres of plants.

For those of us who can’t make it to Chicago this week, we’ll have to rely on the posts and tweets of the lucky folks. Here are a few blogs worth checking out:
