Plant Exchange and Garden Tours

The plant exchange is fast approaching and we will be sending out reminders to everyone in the next couple of weeks. To make it a very spring-like and fun event, we are asking participants to wear their gardening hats, or Easter bonnets. This is a members only event so remember to bring your membership card. (memberships are also available at the door)

The Date of the plant exchange is Tuesday, May 31, 2016, with the plant sale starting at 6.30 pm and the plant exchange at 7 pm. Remember to label your plants, and to note if they are for sunny or shady locations, this makes it easier for less experienced gardeners to pick up their choices.

We are in the process of planning our June Garden Tour and would like to see some new to us gardens. With the early spring, it looks like it is going to be a great year for gardening. We urge you to have a look at your garden, and seriously consider to get it ready for the June Garden Tour. If you are interested please email Heather Brenneman, (saskperennial@hotmail.com) who is co-ordinating this event with your contact information. This can be a real time saver for the committee, who otherwise will have to phone our entire membership list to get gardens secured for the tour.

The July tour also still has some openings, so if you think your garden will show better in full summer, again you can let Heather know.
