Ladner Seedy Saturday is Only a Few Weeks Away!


Yes, it's time for Ladner Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo 2018. Our organizing committee is busy behind the scenes registering new and returning vendors, booking speakers and organizing the seed swap for the event. Are you a vendor wanting to come to Seedy Saturday? We still have a few tables left for lease.

I am excited about our two speakers coming this year. Janis Matson is a well known garden speaker and owns Shoreline Landscape Design. Janis is an instructor at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Langley and also teaches classes at VanDusen Botanical Garden. Janis will be teaching us how to use ornamental grasses in the home garden.

Our next speaker is Randal Atkinson. Known as West Coast Garden's Plant Expert Extraordinaire, Randal is the go to person for design, plant selection, growing and care of plants. Randal is passionate about gardening and loves sharing his knowledge with the public. You can often see him teaching classes at West Coast Garden centre in South Surrey.  He recently spoke at the South Delta Garden Club where he showed us how to plant up a winter container. At Ladner Seedy Saturday he will show us how to toss away winter and add some spring colour to our containers. After all this rain and grey skies I think we are ready for spring, don't you think?

 Don't forget to bring your seeds to swap at our seed swap tables. Please bring seeds in small envelopes ready for trading. All seeds must be packaged with the name of plant, the year seeds were harvested, growing information such as colour and height of plant and if the seed is open pollinated or hybrid. Large bulk quantities of seeds will not be accepted this year. The volunteers don't have time to package large amounts of seed during the event which means the seeds are put away for another year and they lose viability. No seeds to trade? We will have a donation box on the table if you would like to choose a package of seeds to try.

Our vendors are busy getting plants ready for Ladner Seedy Saturday. You will notice this year we moved our event date to March. It's made it a lot easier for us to get plant vendors as there is so much more plant material available. 
So save the date: March 3, 2018 from 10:00am-3:00pm at the All Saints Anglican Church, 4755 Arthur drive in Ladner. Hope to see you there.
