Mark your calendar for Rotary compost sale

April 18 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Driftwood Mall

The popular Spring Skyrocket Compost Sale is in the Driftwood Mall parking lot April 18.

Signs of spring are all around us: brilliant yellow daffodils, flowering rhododendrons, returning song birds and now Strathcona Sunrise Rotary’s Spring Skyrocket Compost Sale.

Knowledgeable gardeners know that most plants grow best when there is lots of compost in the soil.  As the compost breaks down, nutrients are slowly released for sustained growth through the season. Skyrocket compost is packed full of nutrients.  This stuff really works.  Test plots showed amazing plant growth.

The sale is being held Saturday, April 18 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Driftwood Mall.  Bags of Skyrocket sell for $5 each.  Supply is limited so plan to  get there early.
