All that was missing was the sunshine for our Spring 2017 plant sale.
We had a good turnout of customers who enjoyed browsing our selection of plants; the native plants sold out early!
Thanks to all MMG members who donated their plants and their time to making this event a success.
MMGs Emma Chow and MJ Kucerak led the instruction with presentations on different kinds of pollinators and the plants that attract beneficial insects and pollinators to our gardens. As well, integrated pest management techniques were reviewed. Participants built and took home an insect hotel.
Particpants learned how to grow flowers and vegetables from seed and planted a flat of seeds to take home.
MMG Michelle Wilson was the instructor for the session, helped by Phyllis Hall, MJ Kucerak and David Pavanel.
