The Bowen Island Garden Club’s annual plant sale and raffle will take place on May 3.
The plant sale and raffle is the club’s annual fundraiser. The funds raised support a number of island beautification projects, open gardens, the visiting speakers program, the annual spring bulb sale and of course the plant sale.
The plant sale and raffle will open at Bowen Island Community School at 11 a.m. and lasts for one hour only. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to get a place in the front of the queue. The better items sell out very quickly.
The club’s 300 members have been busy collecting a wide range of plants and shrubs over the last month or two to ensure that a wide variety will be available. Prices, as always, will be competitive.
Given the ravages of a particularly savage February, and of course our four-footed friends in the resident deer population, expect to find a large collection of “deer resistant” plants, and others that should survive the long days of the Squamish, as of this year!
When in doubt about the most serendipitous placing of that must-have beauty, be sure to ask a club member for help and advice. Reference books will also be on hand.
Through the generosity of our donors, the raffle will offer a dozen valuable different prizes. Tickets will be on sale at the General Store, the Ruddy Potato and Friday Night Supper at the Legion. The raffle draw will take place at 11:50 a.m., just before the conclusion of the sale. Should you not be in attendance at the draw, fear not, as you will be notified of your successful draw and there will be a prize held in-waiting for you.
Be sure to get your ticket now!
