Putting out the call for those with green thumbs

Green tinged opportunity for stocking up on plants in Castlegar

Step into spring at the Castlegar Garden Club’s Annual Plant Sale – this Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Castlegar Station Museum, 400–13 Avenue.

Satisfy your passion for plants at affordable prices.  Information: Wendy Eggleton – 250.365.0150/wendy.eggleton@icloud.com.

With the late cold spring, digging, dividing, and potting plants for our Plant Sale has been a challenge. Rain or shine, lots of plants will be available. The weather forecast looks good for Saturday, but one never knows. Note: There is an abundance of sheltered space at the Castlegar Station Museum if it rains.

For those looking for a special plant, check out the Collector’s Corner. Plant experts will be on hand to answer your questions.

Castlegar & Area Garden Tour: Sunday, June 22, 2014 – 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. May will bring a profusion of information on the Garden Tour.
