The Rock Hill Gardeners are welcoming spring by sponsoring a gardening show at the Ironton City Building on May 16.

The event is free and open to the public and will feature an educational display on honeybees by Reid’s Apiary.

“People need to be aware that this is the 400th anniversary of when honeybees were brought to the United States, even though it wasn’t the United States yet,” said Elizabeth Melvin, a Rock Hill Garden Club member.

The artistic portion of the show will include categories such as mini, not exceeding five inches; small choice design between 5–12 inches, colorful teacup design between 5–10; parallel; inverted T; and traditional.
