RHINELANDER - Getting a first look at spring's flowers, trees, and shrubs sounds like a dream come true for the gardeners out there.

Hanson's Garden Village in Rhinelander is celebrating the start of the season by giving its customers a sneak peek this weekend.

Gardeners can stop in to talk about new plant varieties and get a greenhouse tour.

Spring also means there will be different planting classes every week during April and May. 
It's still too early in the season to get your hands dirty in your garden though; you'll have to wait until frost advisories go away. 

"End of April to beginning of June is when we are the busiest," said Beth Hanson of Hanson's Garden Village. "Everyone is wanting to get all their plants out and planted before Memorial Day weekend. Everyone is getting their vegetables in the garden. If they started seed at home, that's the time to get the outside." 

Even though planting season hasn't started just yet, Hanson's is open during the week for customers. 

You'll need to RSVP for this weekend's spring preview. 

The open house starts at 11 a.m. Saturday.
