On May 10, the PPRA will hold its second annual plant sale from 8:30 am to 11:30 am at the Plant Recreation Centre, Somerset West at Preston.
A walk around Dalhousie in the spring and summer shows that more and more residents of our neighbourhood are taking up gardening, perhaps with a pot on a balcony, containers on a patio, or full blown flower and vegetable plots. Gardening is an easy, accessible, relatively inexpensive way to enjoy outdoor recreation.
Our PPRA sale features competitively-priced perennial plants; that is plants that grow year after year. All our plants come from healthy existing stock, and we offer a selection suitable for full sun to full shade growing conditions. A small selection of house plants will also be on sale, plus books on gardening. Profits from the plant sale help support the PPRA’s programs, including the 10,000-Step Challenge, kids’ swimming vouchers, and the Plouffe Park summer camp.
