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
