Calgary Home + Garden Show
Kath Smyth will be speaking at the Calgary Home + Garden Show on Saturday, February 29 at 7:00 pm. The title of her talk is “Create a garden that works for you.”
Experienced gardeners have no problem deciding when to plant their peas, how deep to plant their tulip bulbs, or how much to water their geraniums. However, we are known to spend weeks trying to find the perfect spot for a new shrub or spend an entire winter sketching plans for a new perennial garden; and try for years to reconfigure the front walk. Need the confidence to finally remove that overgrown hedge or install a flagstone path? Let’s talk about overcoming the garden planning jitters and how to build the confidence to move ahead.
Before the talk, visit the Society’s booth (#540) at the Calgary Home + Garden Show from February 28 until March 1. We’ll be having a contest with the prize being two tickets to the Society’s Garden Show on April 25 and 26 at the Max Bell Centre
