We’re having a plant and seedling sale during the Wellington Community Market in the Wellington United Church parking lot.
We need lots of plants/seedlings for this sale.
If you have plants that need dividing or plants that have self-sown in your garden, please consider potting them up for the sale. If you have extra seedlings please donate them to the plant sale. We will also accept house plants if you have them!! Some good plants (just to name a few) to donate are: Hostas, peonies, irises, sedums, herbs (chives, thyme, interesting mints, oregano). Extra seedlings of tomatoes, peppers or herbs and flowers are great! Please do not share invasive plants like lily of the valley, bugleweed or day lilies. The money from this plant sale will help fund two pollinators gardens on the Millennium Trail. For more information on where you can drop off your plants before the sale please contact Lise Bois at lisefbois(at)gmail(dot)com or at 416-554-2897
Thanks Nancy Kish for helping to set up and Ann Galvin for help with the take down. Thank you Laura Bryan for the lovely hypertufa planters and the barn quilt. Pat Stuckey and Sandra Dowds provided the display with beautiful arrangements. Many thanks to both of you. And a million thanks to John Garside for providing transportation, helping set up, take down and the beautiful coleous.
It was a very successful event with more than 1300 vehicles visiting. There were so many positive comments!
I have just received the list from Quinte Conservation for their spring seedling availability. Last year I was able to order 650 seedlings for a number of community members!
I’d like to see even more trees planted this year!
I’m hoping that some of you or someone you know would be interested in planting trees either on your/their own properties or to do community planting on municipal properties.
Here is the list of trees available: White pine, white spruce, white cedar – $1.25 Red oak, bur oak, white birch, silver maple – $1.50 Black chokecherry, chokecherry, black elderberry, fragrant sumac – $2.00
These seedlings would be available in the 1st week of April into the first week of May.
Please be aware that this order would be a fundraiser to help fund the purchasing of more “mature” trees to plant on municipal lands. All proceeds would be used to purchase these trees. The funds will be administered by the PEC Horticultural Society and Tree the County.
If you wish to order trees, please contact me ASAP via the email below.
If you wish to be part of a community planting please contact me for more information.
