Tomatomania! 2018 at Cornerstone


Mark your calendars, Tomatomania! returns to Cornerstone April 14 + 15, 2018. 
Saturday from 9AM-4PM
Sunday from 10AM - 4PM

Expect almost 150 varieties of tomatoes this year as we showcase over 30 varieties that we have never before brought up to Sonoma, including our Tomato of the Year, Madame Marmande.

We’ll set up in the new outdoor kitchen space that Sunset Magazine custom designed since their arrival at Cornerstone a couple years ago. When you join us you’ll also get to see the progress in all the Sunset display gardens, as well as sample terrific Sonoma wines, grab a great lunch and shop some amazing specialty stores too.

These classes will be scheduled during the event to offer garden inspiration & guide all your efforts this summer.

SATURDAY | 10:00AM
Author, Garden Designer and Tomatomania Producer Scott Daigre will discuss all the right moves that will ensure your summer is full of tomatoes. From planting and pinching to watering and fertilizing correctly, Scott will cover every aspect of a successful summer in the tomato garden!

SATURDAY | 11:30AM
Tomatomaniac and trend setting Northern California Tomato Hybridizer/Grower Brad Gates will discuss his newest tomato varieties, the “blue” brainstorming and the oh so important garden good fortune that have resulted in Berkeley Tie Dye, Black Beauty, Lucid Gem and so many striped and blue varieties that are setting the tomato world on fire.

Both days we hope to offer guided tours of the Sunset Display and Test Gardens. Learn the designers tricks of the trade; ways to make the most of a space and showcase appropriate plants, ornament and structure to best effect!

Don’t miss it! More details will be forthcoming and all classes are free!
