Flowers Needed

Many many thanks to Diana W, Laura J and Cathie R who have volunteered to do flowers for the PRISMA performance at Willingdon Beach on Wednesday June 14th.

Please look through your gardens and if you have any flowers you are willing to donate it would be very appreciated. The colour theme this year is red, white and black so any daisies or peonies or anything in those colours (or close to those colours) would be perfect.

Laura will be at the Safeway parking lot, 10am Wednesday morning (14th)  to collect your offerings. The baskets will be put together at Diana W's house starting at 11am. More helpers are always welcome.  Diana lives south of town which is why we are arranging flower pick up in town!   Please email me with questions or for directions to Diana's house: 

Thank you.....

Wireworm Trap

At our meeting last week, Joan told us about a wireworm trap developed in PEI. This device, called Noronha Elaterid Light Trap (NELT) traps the click beetles. It is the click beetles' larvae that are the wireworms.

Hummingbird Plants

Our Master Gardeners Sharon and Shirley were at the Vancouver Master Gardeners Spring Affair, March 12, 2017, in Burnaby BC. They would like to share the information they received in a number of the presentations. To start, we have a list of flowers that Ciscoe Morris recommends for attracting hummingbirds. If you are dreaming of gardening and sunny days, perhaps you can check out the local nurseries for some of these to add to your garden.

    Ribes sanguineum ‘King Edward VII’ - Flowering currant 
    Lamprocapnos spectabilis ‘Gold Heart’ - Bleeding heart
