Native plant gardening to be the focus of upcoming Surrey walk

April 5, 2017 by  

Native plant gardening offers many advantages over using imported species, and during an upcoming Surrey event, participants will be given the chance to learn more about these plants.

A representative of the Native Plant Society will be leading a Coastal Native Plants Garden Tour, which will take participants through two area gardens so they can see how native species perform and what they can add to a home landscape setting.

As the tour progresses, those who are taking part will discuss how to choose, install and care for local flora. Refreshments will be served, and as the event will be held no matter what the weather conditions, those who plan on joining in are reminded to come dressed appropriately and to wear sturdy but comfortable footwear. The organizers of a function such as this can have customized note pads and pens prepared to give to each attendee so they can record any notes they wish to make.

The Coastal Native Plants Garden Tour has been organized through the co-operation of the Native Plant Society of BC, the Little Campbell Watershed Society, Friends of Semiahmoo Bay Society and the Dart’s Hill Conservation Trust Society. It will take place on April 30th, starting at 1:00 pm, and those who plan on participating need to register ahead of time to do so. Walkers will gather at the Little Campbell Hatchery before heading out, and additional details about the event can be found on the city of Surrey website.
