The annual Mother’s Day plant sale is back in action May 12.
Produced by Friends of Gardens Manitoba and hosted at the Canadian Mennonite University’s gymnasium, the sale is always very popular, said Judith Tougher, president of Friends of Gardens Manitoba.
"We usually open the doors at 9 a.m. and there is always a huge lineup to come in," said Tougher.
Susan LeBlanc, chair of the Mother’s Day Plant Sale Committee 2013, said there will a huge variety of plants this year.
"We sell Manitoba native plants, small fruits and veggies, many, many varieties of heirloom tomatoes, flowering shrubs, roses, clematis, many many perennials, and of course annuals," said LeBlanc. "This year as an added incentive we are running a raffle for Black Gold, five yards of premium compost."
Also new this year will be plants from Hugh Skinner, well known gardener from Roblin, Man.
Skinner will be selling his plants and answering gardening questions.
People are encouraged to come early as doors will open 9 a.m. on Mother’s Day and will close at 4 p.m.
