Calling all gardeners, are you ready to shop for summer? This weekend there are four plant sales going on in Ladner. I can’t wait to share them with you.
If you are a regular reader you know I am growing lots of plants. I am one crazy tomato lady so I will have lots of tomato plants for sale this weekend. Please come and take some home so I can get into my greenhouse. I need room! The tomato plants are starting to flower so fruit is not far behind. Its been cool at night so most plants you buy this week will need to be hardened off. That means protecting them for a few days until the nights are a comfortable 10C on a regular basis. Don’t even think about placing basil outside yet. Remember the plants can’t put a coat on when the nights are chilly. Placed outside too early, plants just sit and sulk. I am not the only one having a plant sale. The South Delta Evergreen Garden Club is holding their annual sale over at the Delta Hospital Extended Care Unit. The best place to park is at the school board office parking lot and walk across the street from there. Do not enter the front hospital entrance as you won’t be able to access the sale from there. The garden club has a huge array of outstanding perennials just waiting for a new home. Be sure to check out some of the new vendors at their sale. If you have tools that need sharpening, the Repair Man will be there with their new mobile unit.
If you are looking for more tomato plants, West Coast Seeds retail store is the place you need to go. I will have a list of their tomato plants at my sale so if I don’t have what you are looking for they will. Check out their retail store for some amazing gift ideas for Mom. Remember Mothers day is just over a week away.
The Ladner Lawn Bowling Club is also having their annual plant and bake sale on May 2. So check them out as well. Just think you can pick up some home baking to fortify your big plant shopping excursion. You can find the Ladner Lawn Bowling Club at 5128 47 Avenue in Ladner.
So bring your plant trays, wagons and reusable bags as you will need them. We are all offering something different this weekend. Its going to be so much fun and I look forward to seeing you.
