Date: Saturday, September 16 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Host: Dave Hanson
Registration: Garden Club is always FREE and there is no need to pre-register... just grab a friend and come on down. Garden Clubs take place at Sage Garden Greenhouses, and participants meet at our main greenhouse starting around 10:15, so we can get going right at 10:30.
We do ask that participants bring a non-perishable food item for donation. All donations are picked up by the hardworking volunteers at St. Mary's Road United Church, which operates a busy food bank in St. Vital, serving an average of 700 people per month.
Details: Fall is the time of year many of us transition back to being indoor gardeners, and Dave is excited to share strategies to help things go as smoothly as possible for us cold-climate growers. We'll cover tips for finding the best locations for your plants indoors, ways to stimulate new growth on plants as they adjust to life inside, repotting and pruning suggestions, techniques for managing large plants, and of course the big one: pest management. Dave has lots of demos planned, and can't help but bring this type of session to life with some cool examples of living aromatherapy.
About the host: Dave is the founder of Sage Garden and enthusiastic ringmaster of our Garden Clubs. He has been growing plants indoors and out since he was a teenager, and loves to be surrounded by exotic, aromatic and edible plants year-round. You can catch Dave keeping busy in his many roles at Sage Garden, on CBC Radio during the Weekend Morning Show gardening call-in (Sundays, 8:30 am), and as co-host of the popular Grow Guide podcast.
