Sale offers gardeners a chance to stock up

Annual unique plant sale runs Saturday and Sunday in the Gardens at the Horticulture Centre Of The Pacific

There’s something for every garden at this weekend’s unique plant sale at the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific.

Saanich green-thumbs looking to replenish their garden beds or pick up a few tips from some experts can head over to the Gardens at the Horticulture Centre Of The Pacific this weekend.

The annual unique plant sale runs Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with free admission to the gardens located at 505 Quayle Rd.

“If people have always wondered what we are, this is a good time to come by and have a look around and see what we are all about,” said head gardener Linda Petite.

The public can tour the garden to get some inspiration for the backyard, while members will get 10 per cent off all purchases.

“If you have any questions, this is your opportunity to ask because we have the gardening staff, the master gardeners, our volunteers and our students on hand to help the public,” said Petite.

She said three greenhouses are filled with thousands of plants, everything from shrubs and perennials to herbs and vegetables.

“We propagate a lot of the plants from the gardens, so we have unique plants that you wouldn’t get at any other nursery,” said Petitie.

All proceeds from the plant sale will support the maintenance of the gardens along with the development of not-for-profit teaching gardens.
