Fall Clean-up

The weather is changing, and the anticipated shut off of the water in the Gardens is October 6th, but possibly before that date.

August Update

A recent clean-up has the gardens looking pretty good as the summer winds down. Most of the beds will need boards replaced for next season. If you have a little time between now and the fall clean-up, there is a bed at the south end that was spoken for, but never planted. A little time weeding now will make the fall clean-up go faster.

We need a concerted effort to find new gardeners for next season. Talk to your friends and neighbours.

When to plant?

I grew up in the South Okanagan knowing that May 24th was the safe planting date for things like tomatoes. A friend reminded me today of another piece of local wisdom……….don’t plant if there is still snow on Mt. Kobau.

May 15th – 6:30 pm Spring Clean-up at the Gardens. Bring a friend!
