The Ladysmith Saltair Garden Club will meet on
Thursday, April 16th at 7pm
St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church,
Corner of Buller St., and 3rd Ave.,
Doors open at 6:30pm
Our speaker will be Devmurti Khalsa of Denman Figs for Life on the topic of
Hardy Figs & Unusual Edible Permaculture Trees.
“Lusciously sweet figs can flourish in our coastal gardens; the trees are beautiful, pest free and drought tolerant.”
Devmurti grows some 100 varieties! We’ll also learn about other unusual edible trees that thrive in our climate: delectable Black Mulberry, Japanese Raisin Tree, Yellowhorn, Japanese Heartnut and others.
Devmurti will have some trees for sale.
Our Plant Sale co-ordinator, Jeanette, will recirculate the sign-up sheet for THE Plant Sale to be held May 9th at Aggie Hall and will provide us with further information involving the big day.
