Treasured Bulb Sale
September 13, 2014
Free admission to sale
Admission by donation to Garden
Building on the success of our popular spring plant sale A Growing Affair and our bulb sales, the UBC Botanical Garden's Friends of the Garden group is pleased to announce our 4th annual Treasured Bulb Sale.
The Treasured Bulb Sale will offer a wide range of bulbs for sale, from garden favourites to specialty bulbs. Beginners as well as collectors will find quite a few gems for all seasons. Some sources for bulbs include: private gardens, the Lohbrunner Alpine Garden at UBC Botanical Garden, and some specialty growers. The Shop in the Garden will also open with lots of accessories and tools for bulb planting, as well as your favourite commercial collections. Garlic for sale is grown at UBC Botanical Garden.
Garden tours are offered throughout the day with admission by donation (and membership); tours on the Greenheart Canopy Walkway will also be offered at a special discount on the event day. Tea and goodies will be available by donation and a powerpoint presentation with basic information and tips for successfully growing bulbs will be shown throughout the day in our Reception Centre.
Experts will be on-hand to offer gardening advice.
Parking and Bicycles: Ample parking and bike racks are available.
This fundraising event is organized by Friends of the UBC Botanical Garden. All proceeds will support UBC Botanical Garden.
