Spring into gardening at upcoming club show

View Royal Garden Club members bring out their best

When the buds begin to bloom, that’s a sure sign the View Royal Garden Club’s Spring Show is just around the corner.

The April 11 show, one of three the club conducts throughout the year, features something for everyone and offers a great opportunity to see something you think might look great in your garden, said spring show co-ordinator Ann Fox.

“You can anticipate tables loaded with daffodils, tulips, perennials, potted plants, flowering shrubs and vegetables,” she said. “Everyone brings the very best from their gardens.”

The View Royal Garden Club, established in 1949, is one of the longest-serving continual garden clubs on Vancouver Island.

Admission to the Spring Show is $5 and includes refreshments and a chance to win some great door prizes. Baked goods and garden items are on sale as well, and non-members are welcome to exhibit.

The show happens Saturday, April 11 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Shoreline community school in View Royal. Call 250-727-0076 for more information.
