It was a busy weekend but Ladner Seedy Saturday has come and gone. After being so busy for the last four months, I am sitting here twiddling my thumbs anxious to get out in the garden.

There were lots of seed vendors on hand at our event. The Planting Seeds Project came here from Lillooet to showcase their seed collection. They also had a children’s craft table at the event. Children made crafts from seeds.

GMO Free Canada had a table at our event to educate the public. People were able to ask questions and get informed on the progress of the No GMO movement. I fully support this cause as we all have the right to healthy food without chemicals and the right to save our own seed.

We also had plant specialists selling everything from lemon trees to paw paw plants. I even found a lemon tree hardy for Delta that doesn’t need to come inside for winter.

My favourite seed company, West Coast Seeds came to the event. West Coast Seeds sells seeds that do well in our west coast gardens. Their gardening guide is an invaluable resource for all gardeners with information about planting every type of vegetable and flower. I would be lost without it.

Cute little succulents in containers all decorated for Valentines Day were a big attraction. Kids loved them.

The day was fun but now its time to get down to some serious gardening. Seeds must be sown, leaves raked and compost spread. The Crocuses are up in my garden and I can’t wait to get outside once again.
