Ladner Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo 2013

We are pleased to announce our second Ladner Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo. It will be on February 9, 2013 from 10-3 at the Ladner Baptist Church. If you would like to be a vendor at our event pleas me let me know by commenting below. I will send you a registration form.

So what is a Seedy Saturday? Its an annual event held all across the country to bring like minded gardeners together to shop for seeds, plants and garden accessories for the upcoming garden season. We focus on all things organic from seeds to soil and fertilizers.

Its an event where you can come to swap open pollinated seeds, especially the heirloom types. I love starting plants from seeds so I have lots of seed to bring to the swap table and hope I will bring home something new to try in my garden. I know what you are thinking, why grow from seed? Did you know how many different plants you can grow? I don't want just the ordinary plants most garden centers offer. I want heirloom types of tomatoes, the ones with flavour that my grandmother grew. I want to grow flowers that are different from the norm.

Last year we held out first Seedy Saturday and had lots of fun. This is a new event for our community and we are so happy to be hosting this event.There will also be garden experts speaking about different topics during the event and guess what? Its free! Last year we had several wonderful speakers and I hope to have some exciting speakers again this year.
Happy gardening,
