MMG Spring Plant Sale May 23rd, 2020 is CANCELLED

Sadly we must cancel our MMG SPRING PLANT SALE, originally scheduled for Saturday, May 23rd at Riverwood.

All May events at Riverwood are now cancelled, as well as some events in early June, due to the current pandemic.

We take some comfort in the fact that gardening is NOT cancelled and neither is Spring, so we’ll be busy in our own gardens in the meantime. But we are always available online for helpful advice.

And any of the Master Gardener groups would be happy to answer your gardening questions, just ask!

We are especially interested in promoting a renewal of the idea of Victory Gardens in 2020, as a way to provide food security, encourage healthy outdoor activity that allows for needed physical distancing, to give your kids a fun, educational project, help the environment, and so much more.

Check out our MMG social media for helpful times on how to #GetGrowing this season.

And we are hopeful that our proposed Fall Plant Sale 2020 might still be possible…check back for updates on our planned  October event at the Port Credit Library.

Stay safe and healthy, Happy Gardening!

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!
