Whether you are a gardening expert or the proud owner of a balcony jungle, the Mill Bay Community Flower and Garden Show will prime you for a season of gardening success. Please join us Saturday, June 03, between 9 and 2 PM at Cobble Hill Hall to celebrate gardening and raise funds for the local charities we support! Entry is just $2 (children free).
Established shortly after the end of WWII, the show brings Mill Bay, Cobble Hill and Shawnigan Lake together to share our common love of gardening and community.
Do you have a breathtaking Austin rose? A perfect snap pea? Ready to try your hand at a whimsical flower-arranging challenge such as “Mad Hatter”, “Sunshine” or “Bet Your Boots”? Beginners to experts – all gardeners young and old – are welcome. Download the exhibitors’ guide at www.millbaygardenclub.com/show to discover dozens of classes and a few simple rules for entries.
