March has certainly come in like a lion, here’s hoping the lamb prevails soon!
With record breaking snow falls once again, Calgary and area are suffering the wraths of an unruly spring. As we long for green grass, tulips and getting our hands in the soil, our biggest task right now is to get out of our neighbourhoods safely and keep walkways and driveways clear of the white stuff. Yes, we know it’s good for moisture and the skiers are loving all the powder, but enough is enough. Balzac Billy’s prediction may have been just a little off.
However, the first day of spring is looming and with that the hope that things will turn around and we can all get to gardening. Our spring workshops have been posted and we are excited to get things growing with our Seed Starting Workshop on March 11th. Be sure to check all our other offerings, including Terrariums, Jewel Box Gardens, Garden Design, Trees and Shrubs for our area and more. Class sizes are limited, and your registration fee holds your spot and will be discounted from your total project cost. See our workshop page for full details.
Spring also gives us a good excuse to clean up and clean out, take advantage of up to 90% off at our annual spring Garage Sale on discontinued, damaged and clear out items. We have so many great new items filling the shelves for your home and garden décor needs, as well as all sorts of materials to get you growing started now. Green thumbs don’t have to wait for the snow to melt, start seeding, grow microgreens, pick up some new houseplants, enjoy the spring blooms in the Greenhouse and keep planning so you can hit the ground running as soon as we are able.
We are just as ready for spring as you are, if you need a hand with any of your garden plans or are considering a major landscaping project, be sure to stop in or give us a call; we’d be happy to help you out. Even just a wander through our Greenhouse and Garden Centre will be sure to put you in a better mood, we look forward to seeing you soon.
