See you at our Meet-and-Greet and plant sale in two weeks time!

We'll be out on Saturday, April 13th at 10 a.m. to host a meet-and-greet event at the garden. This is a great time to meet your fellow gardeners, plant your first seeds and ask us any garden related questions you might have. We're excited to say that our friends from Victory Gardens will be out selling seeds and starts, so plan on taking advantage of their offerings. Rain or shine, but let's hope for sun!

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.
