On Wednesday, July 30, at 9am, we will be working in the Iris beds and we are lucky to have Iris expert Penny Santosham to give us tips on caring for the Iris rhizomes. We will be dividing the Irises at 9:00am and then, after packaging and labeling them, they will be available for sale starting at 12 noon.

The iris rhizome sale will take place at the Gardens on:
Wednesday July 30 from 12 - 2pm and
Thursday July 31st , from 7am - 2pm

The Iris rhizomes will be available by colour: pink, yellow, white, purple, blue, mauve, two-tone, bicolour, bronze, and more.

Prices are $4 to 5 per rhizome and 3 for $5 for dwarf Irises.

For more information, please contact Wilma or Trina at the Gardens,

Weedy Wednesdays (and Saturdays)

Every Wednesday & Saturday, June through September

Work with expert gardeners, and learn as you go along. No experience necessary!

Join us for an hour or two, or more, and help keep the Gardens looking beautiful.
Our 6 hectares requires lots of labour! Even a couple of hours of your time will make a difference! We look forward to seeing you in the Gardens.

There are many gardening opportunities for those who have a special interest in a particular plant such as Daylilies, Roses, Dahlias Grasses, annuals or perennials. We have beds that would greatly benefit from some extra TLC.

This season Wilma and Trina are working in the Gardens Tuesday to Saturday, and they look forward to welcoming volunteers on Wednesdays or Saturdays (or both), or on any of our special work parties.

Just give Wilma and Trina a call to let them know you are coming (leave a message), 250-494-6385.
