Green Dreamers: July 2017 Update

Print Email

We will meet at Sunnyside & Bank on Saturday, July 8, 2017 from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. Depending on weather and numbers of Green Dreamers, we will branch out to do some transplanting and some light gardening at the Firehall and at the Hopewell School bed nearest the younger kids' playground.

On Thursday July 7th, Brian Ure and I moved some perennials from the former Hortus Urbanus garden on Glen to the bed nearest the TD building. Ailsa Francis began her work on the new Oat Couture Garden Wednesday, July 6th, and asked us to move what she is excavating. So we did! The public bed nearest the new Oat Couture garden will likely be affected by the patio design and renovations taking place. We will maintain this public bed but not plant anything new in the near future. We agree with Ailsa that the weed trees on this bed should be removed and a new tree planted. When this happens we will have to be prepared to save perennials already planted. Stay tuned. It all looks good!! 

You may have noticed pictures of some lovely hosta specimens from a neighbour on Cameron. Barbara Dempsey & Brian Ure retrieved these hostas and we will be transplanting at Sunnyside & Bank on Saturday.
