Doug Oster will be speaking from the Green Thumb Stage daily during the annual Duquesne Light Home and Garden Show.

Everybody Gardens editor Doug Oster will be appearing at the Duquesne Light Home and Garden Show from March 1-10, speaking every day.

The event is held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center and Oster will be speaking from the Green Thumb Stage, which is on the first floor, in the back near the Everybody Gardens area.

When you come in the front entrance, go to the booth for vendors and pick up your will-call tickets. Tell the person you are there to hear Oster speak. A condition of getting the free tickets is that you come for his presentation.

If you would like to get on the list to see Oster, just email him at doster@ 535mediallc.com or send him a message on Facebook.

He will have a free packet of ‘Heart of Italy’ tomato seeds for anyone who comes to hear him speak. There will also be a chance to win Flower Carpet roses.

Enter to win a trip to Fallingwater with Oster. It includes a special in-depth tour of the house that allows for photographs to be taken (usually not allowed). There’s also a tour of the grounds from Fallingwater’s horticulturalist Ann Talarek and lunch at the Fallingwater Cafe as part of the prize.

There’s also a giveaway for a KitchenAid mixer, courtesy of Everybody Craves.

You can also sign up for the Everybody Gardens Seed of the Month Club during the show. If you sign up at the show, you’ll receive two free tickets to the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and a free bottle of Bobbex deer repellent. New this year at the Everybody Gardens booth will be a bundled selection of Oster’s favorite seeds.

Everybody Craves editor Meghan Rodgers and Everybody Adventures editor Bob Frye will also be speaking on March 2 and 9.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
