The Crown Point Garden club will be at this year’s Seedy Saturday on February 6 at the McMaster Innovation Park on Longwood Avenue (just south of Main in Westdale). Visit the Seedy Saturday web page
We’ll be using our table mainly to raise funds for next year’s projects, including Best Flowers Forward, the Compost/Plant Sale on May 28, and road trips.
We’ll be offering for sale:
- “home garden” sized bags of Premier PGX. a high quality seed starting mix. More uniform and more finely screened than the Pro-Mix you get at the big box or the garden center, this stuff is great for starting tiny seeds. If you’ve had trouble with seed starting in the past, this peat/vermiculite based soil-less mix may do the trick for you this year.
- pre-filled containers for winter (or spring!) sowing . These are especially nice if you want to start only a few varieties and don’t want to buy (or store) a full bag of potting mix and a lot of container paraphernalia.
- 2×3″ cells for seed starting, in packages of 12. These are great space -savers when you don’t need a whole nursery tray full of seedlings.
- small bags of Acti-Sol hen manure fertilizer– which is also used as a squirrel deterrent..
Prices have not been set, but they’ll be very reasonable. Do drop by for a visit, barrage us with questions, buy some stuff, and help us continue wreaking beauty on the neighbourhood in 2016.
