Plant sale next weekend in Cumberland

All proceeds from the sales (on April 20) go toward current and future purchases of forest and wetland around Cumberland

Time to ready your wheelbarrow for the 2013 Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS) Spring Plant Sale.

This year’s sale will feature the same low prices and plant stock hardy to our climate, with a good selection of flowering perennials, fruit and vegetable starters, grasses and small shrubs.

Plants are donated year around, potted in one to five-gallon pots and a cared for in our “foster gardens” between sales so hardy in our climate. Selections include grasses, flowering perennials, small shrubs and tree, fruits, and ground covers.

Experienced gardeners will be on hand to help with choosing plants for dry, boggy, shady and sunny locations, whether you’re looking to fill spots in an established garden, starting a new bed or planning a whole new yard.

This year we are also selling Simply Fish soil amendment at $2/litre. It is sustainably produced in Powell River and certified for organic gardening use.

With no overhead, all proceeds from the sales go toward current and future purchases of forest and wetland around Cumberland. The plant sale happens Saturday, April 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2731 Derwent (corner of Third Street and Derwent Avenue in Cumberland).
