The summer has gone so fast and here we are getting ready for the fall and all the gardening activities. Believe it or not, fall is an excellent time to plant. The warmer soil helps roots become more established as a preparation for next year’s growing season. As a result, more blooms and more robust plants will appear next spring.
A great opportunity to buy plants is coming soon on Saturday, Sept 10, 2022, 8 am to noon at Trent Valley Archive’s 6 th Annual Plant Sale at 567 Carnegie Ave, Peterborough, just north of the Zoo. It will be mostly composed of perennials, with herbs and small shrubs. If you’re not sure what plants to purchase, gardening books and knowledgeable gardeners will be on hand to help you identify the best species for your garden.
And if you have plants to donate, please drop them at the Archives before Friday, Sept 9 th. We appreciate your support which keeps our archives flourishing! If you have questions, please contact us.
