MMG FALL PLANT SALE Saturday October 5th, 2019 at the Port Credit Library

MISSISSAUGA MASTER GARDENER’s FALL PLANT SALE
Saturday October 5, 2019  10am-2pm  at the Port Credit Library

Did you know that fall is a great time to plant?  Perennials are able to concentrate on root development during the autumn as above ground growth slows.

So join us on Saturday October 5th at the Port Credit Library to get some new plants for your garden.  Opportunity all day to have your garden questions answered by the experts.  Spring bulbs (to plant this fall) will be for sale as well.

Presentations:
11 am – Pollination and Growing Native Plants

12 pm – Preparing Your Garden for Winter

See you there!

 

Come on Down to CNE 2019, Master Gardeners Advice Clinic

The Canadian National Exhibition  2019 runs from August 16 to Sept 2, including Labour Day Monday.

Master Gardeners from all over the GTA will be on hand at Heritage Court at the Master Gardener’s booth throughout the event. Find us near the flower show.

Bring your gardening questions along; our MG volunteers are ready and willing to offer our expert advice.

See you there!

MMG June Outing to Whistling Gardens

MMGs enjoyed a great outing to Whistling Gardens this past weekend. It was cool & grey out, but the gardens made up for it with great displays of colourful peonies, well over 1000 varieties!

Owner Darren Heimbecker gave us a guided tour of his botanical treasures, accompanied by Leggo, his 6 month old puppy. (Leggo wasn’t as interested in the horticultural detail as we were.) But MMGs thoroughly appreciated the collection of rare conifers, native Carolinian trees and unusual ornamental plants.

It was a great outing and we highly recommend visiting Whistling Gardens with your garden group. A unique, must-see collection for any plant lover. Group tours welcome; guided tours available and well worth it!
