The Lewiston GardenFest is free to attend. Visitors can tour the gardens and visit vendors featuring flowers, plants, garden art and more. Speakers each day demonstrate new and different techniques. Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions throughout the weekend. Anyone can also participate in a container garden contest for prizes.

The Lewiston GardenFest is completely run by volunteers from the local community and Lewiston Garden Club members. The club is marking its 90th anniversary this year.

  1. Hi Connie, some of my peonies didn’t bloom last year. The same ones don’t have any bud this year again. My other
    Has bud. Please advise me what to do to encourage bloom. Thank you

  2. Dig up a little ground in a few spots around and under this plant and put in some banana peels, then cover them up with the dirt you dug out. , I was told this when I had a hydrangia that did not bloom after being moved for 5 years. The first year after doing this, I got 2 flowers , this past year I got 7….what can you lose, it is worth trying.
