The 5th Annual Gaggle of Gardeners bus trip will be held on July 6, 2017. We leave at 9 a.m. and return around 6 p.m. This year, our group will be gaggling in Truro and surrounding areas, where we will shop at various garden centres and nurseries (and, if we’re lucky, a market so we can buy flats of strawberries). This bus trip is one of the best social events of the season (please note that we do not tour gardens – it’s purely a shopping trip)!
To help you when shopping for plants for your garden, these 5 tips will help you choose healthy, well-grown specimens, especially trees and shrubs.
There are some exciting new plants this year at all garden centres and nurseries, and here are some highlights of President’s Choice’s offerings (true to form, my new plants highlights are mostly edibles!)
There are bargains to be found at garden centres! Shopping the late-season sales is one way to find good shrubs and perennials at discounted prices.
