Plants are very slow to pop up this year due to the colder spring.  We are hoping the next two weeks will improve their appearance so they will be out in full leaf the day of the sale.

Free gardening seminar in Guelph this Saturday.

Sat, 19 May 2018

2:00 PM – 3:30 PM   

Guelph Curling Club, 816 Woolwich Street

Guelph, ON N1H 6J2

The focus will be on selecting varieties that grow well and have few diseases without chemical treatments. Recent breeding has completely changed the way we can grow roses. It is time to bring them back into our pollinator friendly gardens.
