Gardeners! Good news! The PLANT SALE is back!
The first weekend in May the Scandinavian Centre will hold its huge annual Plant Sale Fundraiser — We need your extra plants!
Date: May 1st & 2nd, 2010
Time: 10am — 3pm
Place: Scandinavian Community Centre, 6540 Thomas St, Burnaby BC
Most of us will soon be busy dividing roots and discarding runaway plants. We need those extra perennials, shrubs, trees, or house plants. Pot them up!
Prepping Your Plants for the Sale
Keep them watered and in a sheltered spot and your plants will be established and ready for their new owners. Start tomatoes or other annual vegetables and flowers too. Those have been snapped up quickly and we never have enough.
Label your plants with their popular and scientific names if you know them, and give any other information that might help a new owner. Colour and growing conditions are useful along with height or size.
We could use your expertise and your help on our committee and for a few hours during the Sale itself. Contact anyone on the Plant Sale Committee if you can help. Also, if you need help or advice or have extra pots to offer, or need some, get in touch.
Pick Up Available
We have even been known to pick up your plants, and maybe you can put up a few posters for us in return — the usual group effort. Very Scandinavian.
