NIRS meeting

Gardeners especially have to learn to adapt to global warming.

That’s the theme for speakers at the April meeting of the North Island Rhododendron Society (NIRS), Tuesday, April 12.

Rhodo expert and ARS silver medal winner Terry Richmond from Port Alberni, and avid gardener Allan Murray from Cobble Hill, will explain what we need to know in order to successfully grow rhododendrons in our changing environment.  The Comox Valley has always had ideal conditions for rhodo culture but wetter winters and longer, drier summers with water restrictions now present new challenges for growers.

Join us at Comox United Church hall, 250 Beach, with doors opening at 7 p.m.

The meeting starts at 7:30.
