Side-by-side comparison between products and companies gives homeowners the information they need to choose the right items for their home improvement projects, says Tammy Ridgley, Home Show Manager.

Area consumers can find windows, doors, fencing, decks, kitchen and bath products, pools, spas, home accessories and much more – plus experts who can answer all of their home improvement questions. The Show, produced by the Home Builders Association of St. Louis and Eastern Missouri, will include approximately 350 booths, filling both levels of the facility. The St. Charles Convention Center is conveniently located just off Interstate 70 at Convention Center Blvd. in St. Charles, Missouri and has 70,000 square feet of exhibit space and 1,100 free parking spaces.

Show visitors can attend informative seminars at the Better Living Stage for expert advice on how to have their best yard and garden. Craig LeHoullier, gardening author and tomato expert, will have great information for area vegetable growers. Craig’s passion for gardening began in the mid-80s and he is widely recognized as an expert on heirloom tomatoes. Since his retirement in 2008 he has become fully immersed in garden writing, education and amateur plant breeding. He is responsible for naming and popularizing many well-known tomatoes, such as Cherokee Purple.

He has added amateur tomato breeding to his garden resume, and continues to co-lead the Dwarf Tomato Breeding project, responsible for creating 90 (and counting) new compact growing varieties for space-challenged gardeners. Audiences will learn how to grow amazing tomatoes and discover the art of growing vegetables in containers and small spaces, as Craig shares tips and techniques from his books Epic Tomatoes and Growing Vegetables in Straw Bales.
