The 14th Annual Nelson Garden Festival was a hit Saturday on Baker and Kootenay Streets.

The event, sponsored by the West Kootenay EcoSociety, saw a sellout crowd of people arrive looking for items for the garden from the 50 vendors and community groups.

Even Mother Nature attended, bringing spectacular spring-like weather.

Some of the items up for sale  included perennials, annuals, vegetable starts, trees, furniture, flowers and chicken manure.

The Garden Festival is a precursor the upcoming Cottonwood Market, beginning Saturday near Cottonwood Falls, the Nelson Downtown Local Market and the Friday-night Market Fest events.

The Cottonwood Market runs Saturdays from May 16 through to October 31.

All the events are run and sponsored by the West Kootenay EcoSociety.
