Workshops will be given on topics of seed saving, gardening, and policy issues relating to small-scale agriculture, then a food film will be shown. There will be seed vendors and organizations in attendance and a table will be set up for those who would like to exchange seeds that they’ve saved themselves. Entrance is by donation.
Winnipeg Seedy Saturday is one of hundreds of events that take place across Canada every spring and supported by Seeds of Diversity Canada. Visit www.seeds.ca to find out more about this organization and see the list of events.

And of course we will have our entire selection of seeds by Renee's Garden Seeds. These non GMO organic seeds are one of a kind! Expect pollinator seeds, hummingbird garden seeds and butterfly garden seeds just to name a few. The colored radishes and carrots were a favorite last year as well!

Drop by the booth and say hello! We look forward to seeing everyone after a long cold winter.

Where oh where is our fall?

Fall 2018;  this fall came in way too fast for my liking, along with many days of below normal temperatures; brrrr.   But we have no control over Mother nature, and she does play an important role in many other wonders throughout the year.  
karl forester grass, winnipeg garden centers, perennials on saleNow is a great time to consider plants that bloom late or have vibrant autumn foliage. Plants thrive in fall planting because of the cooler air, they lose less water.  Fall is when most bulbs need to be planted;  tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, lilies, crocuses, alliums ... they should all go in the ground now to stimulate root growth that'll carry them through the season.
If you are continuing to create an appealing container garden for the season;  try mixing tall grasses with ornamental peppers and kale, or by adding perennials such as;  asters, chrysanthemums, sedum etc  and don’t forget to add pumpkins or gourds in or around your display.  Yes, you can still plant nursery stock (trees, shrubs & perennials) in fall! As long as the ground is workable and using proper planting techniques, your plants will have a strong start.  Don’t forget to water your containers and beds after you plant—this helps the roots get off to a strong start. Mulch is beneficial to trees, shrubs, and perennials.

fall mum, fall mum sale, winnipeg garden centersNOTE: Nothing quite says autumn gardening like potted mums  The potted mums in garden centres during late summer to autumn should be treated as annuals. If you receive a plant as a gift you can keep it outside, however, they won’t survive winter. Like other annuals, mums benefit from deadheading to encourage new blooms.  If you plan on keeping them inside, place in a sunny window away from drafts.
You could want to start preparing your garden pots with either a Halloween theme (cobwebs & big Spiders and Witches with colourful brooms etc) or slowly transition that same pot into a Christmas theme, by applying your birch or dogwood sticks into your containers now, perhaps even making holes with pipes where you  may want a small tree topper or solar lights to be inserted.
Usually the winter garlands and branches etc., begin trickling into our green house by early November, and then the lovely smell of Christmas trees will follow later. 
Join us for some great nights out and learn to make and decorate wreaths and containers; see our class schedule.
