Junuary At the Cambie Garden

Junuary At the Cambie Garden

With this heat, it's a good idea to plan on visiting the garden every 2 to 3 days to soak your soil. Brian Minter was on CBC's BC Today program last week and imparted the wisdom of early morning watering as the best time of the day to feed your plants. Second best (and perhaps more realistic) is to water during the cooler evening hours. Watering during the hottest midday hours can scald your leaves and fail to penetrate those deeper layers in the soil where you want your roots to dig.

Farewell 2017 -- Welcome 2018!

We haven't made the date official yet, but know that this fun garden kick-off event will be scheduled for some time in late March or April. This will be a great opportunity to meet fellow gardeners, break dirt (if you haven't already) and ask us any pressing growing questions. In addition, this event will serve as our official deadline for collecting any outstanding 2018 Garden Fees.
