Time to prep the garden

It's a sure sign of spring when the annual plant sale at the Summerland Ornamental Gardens takes place.

The sale is a fundraiser supporting the Friends of the Gardens, a local non-profit.

Vendors will offer an array of annual and perennial flowers, native plants, shrubs, a few trees and vegetables, including many varieties of tomatoes.

Proceeds from the plant sale support the maintenance of the gardens, including two full-time gardeners who, with help from volunteers, keep the flower beds looking fresh and colourful.

The event will also feature coffee or tea, cookies, and a food truck.

FOG is offering a special afternoon workshop: 'Okanagan Gardening for Newcomers,'  with Kathryn McCourt.

The workshop takes place from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The event takes place May 5 and 6 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

The Ornamental Gardens are located across the highway from Sunoka Provincial Park in Summerland, and up the hill past the Summerland Research and Development Centre buildings.
