Mill Bay Garden Club is hosting the 70th Community Flower & Garden Show on Saturday May 27 from 9am until 2pm at the Cobble Hill Community Hall located at 3550 Watson Avenue, Cobble Hill.
While the ever expanding and active Mill Bay Garden Club has many events, features, guest speakers and programs throughout the year, the annual Flower Show has been the peak point of skills learned and practiced. The “Strawberry Tea”, prepared and served by the South Cowichan Healthcare Auxiliary, is a favourite. The most popular aspect, besides the competition itself, which features over 80 competition classes open to the public, are the gardening workshops offered.
This year, Margaret Walker is giving a workshop on Hardy Ferns at 9:30am and the Victoria Compost Education Centre is conducting a “Composting Basics” workshop beginning at 10:30am.
Don’t miss the Silent Auction in the hall which showcases many garden related as well as handmade items, bids accepted until 1:00pm. Also be sure to visit the Master Gardeners, who will answer any gardening questions, or problems you may have as well as the plant and garden vendors located on the grounds of Cobble Hill Hall.
If you wish to enter the competition, be sure to pick up a program with a list of competition classes and rules at Buckerfield’s, Thrifty Foods, Country Grocer, Valley Vines to Wines, and Dinter Nursery or download from our website, www.millbaygardenclub.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
