Planning for spring
Attention all gardeners! Even though you might think that this glorious summer will never end, fall is just around the corner, and it’s time to start planning your spring garden. Help is at hand. The Bowen Island Garden Club’s daffodil queen, Sheila Webster, is once again offering great deals for your spring bulb collection.
This year, she has four varieties of the taller daffodil: King Alfred; Missouri (yellow with an orange cup); Barret Browning (white with an orange cup) and Tahiti (double yellow-petalled).
These retail at $28 for 100 bulbs for the first three and $45 per 100 for the more exotic Tahiti. The smaller and first flowering tete a tete daffodil, sells for $22 per 100.
Snowdrops (single galanthus variety) are offered at $40 per 100. All prices quoted above include tax.
To place an order, email Sheila Webster at firstname.lastname@example.org. Orders will be available for pick-up after October 19, but must be placed before September 30.
The Garden Club’s spring bulb planting program has been in operation now for seven years.
It is offered as a service to the community with no profit accruing to the club.
Over this seven year period, islanders have planted over 150,000 bulbs both on their own properties and alongside the highways and byways of our island. Don’t miss out on that great deal and get your orders in pronto!
