It’s that time of year for all the plant sales to begin here on the west coast of BC. I am excited to be offering a good selection of heirloom tomatoes for the sale on Saturday, May 3. If you don’t like tomatoes, I have much more. Lets see, I will have Celery, Lacinato Kale, Red Russian Kale, Lettuce, Fernleaf Dill, Sage, Thyme, Chocolate Mint, Peas, Chives and British Sovereign Strawberries. I was pretty excited to see flowers on the strawberries this week so fruit is on the way. There is nothing better than homegrown strawberries. I will have more crops if this crazy weather decides to warm up. I have a greenhouse full of Basil, beans, cucumbers, squash and zucchini. It’s just too early to even think of letting them go outside.
If you can’t find the tomato plant you want at my sale, check out West Coast Seeds just down the street from me. They have grown some amazing varieties of tomatoes and are having their sale on the same day. There are so many tomatoes to choose from.It makes it very difficult as a grower to decide which seeds to start in early spring. Like West Coast Seeds I believe in growing organically.
There is also another plant sale hosted by the South Delta Evergreen Garden Club. If you are looking for some perennial plants for your garden, they will be having their sale on May 3 as well. This club donates 50% of their proceeds back to Delta Hospital so get out there and support a good cause. If you need directions to their event please check out their site as it’s a bit tricky.
Make May 3 your plant sale destination day. Support local growers in your own community by showing your support. We love what we do and want to share our passion for growing.
