Welcome to our 77th Year of Gardening!

The trouble with gardening is that is does not remain an avocation. It becomes an obsession.
-Phyllis McGinley

OUR PLANT SALE: Saturday May 20, 2017 9AM SHARP!!!

Omemee Legion – on the main street of Omemee.

With our plant sale only a few weeks away, we are well into the planning stages, and – wow – it promises to be another great day!! Doors open to the public at 9am sharp – come early for the best selection.

It’s very exciting! For starters, again this year we are offering beautiful geraniums (our “Plants of the Year”.) We already have a wonderful selection of perennials growing in pots – they will be awesome by sale time! And, our members will be digging and donating 100’s more wonderful perennials right from their own gardens(I know for a fact that there will be a great selection of named hosta and daylilies,) grasses, vegetables, tubers and bulbs – wow! And, yes, heirloom tomatoes will be available (our resident heirloom tomato specialist is at it again!!!)

New this year will be our “Perennials for Pollinators” area. The key to attracting butterflies, bees and hummingbirds to your garden is to offer colourful blooms all season long. So, we are going to group our favourite pollinator plants! Just make your choices, take them home, and watch the pollinators feed.

Contact me, or any member of the executive if you would like more information. If you have plants to donate, just give us a call – we’d love to have them for our fundraising plant sale.


See you on May 20th!!!
