While seeds have been sown, and seedlings planted the official date & time for the garden’s
first communal get-together and is Wednesday, May 25th, starting at 6.00 pm.
A nice opportunity to meet-and-greet and
for new gardeners to get acquainted with such delights as the compost!
Some of you will be bringing in seedlings.
When purchasing, check if the pots can be returned, or are recyclable.
Urban Harvest on Sorauren accept their pots back.
And Loblaws do, too.
Anyone with knowledge of other retailers who do this, please feel free to comment.
Regardless, please don’t park pots at the garden as we have no means of disposing of them!
Your seedlings are in…
Rain may fall…But if not you will have to water.
Take care to do so gently and avoid leaf burn by watering only the roots.
The two leaves that appear when your seed starts to unfurl and poke up from the soil is called a cotyledon.
They are part of the seed and serve as food sources until true leaves are formed and the plant is capable of photosynthesis.
