The gift of local plants for sale when the garden aurora event returns

The sale of the garden Aurora plant will be held on Sunday, May 29 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Aurora Home Hardware.

If you want to add Indigenous flowers and greens to your garden this year, look no further than the Garden Aurora annual plant sale.

Gardeners, who regularly line up before they open their doors, will return this weekend after a two-year hiatus due to the global epidemic.

Garden Aurora will take over the parking lot from Aurora Home Hardware on Sunday, May 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“This is exciting because we haven’t had a fundraiser for two years,” says Cindy Aurora Cindy Squid of Paradise. At the time of the outbreak, the garden was in a state of shock. Many people are interested in planting and growing their own food, and it is a good idea for parents to do it with their children so that children can learn how to grow things.

It is still a “mystery” about what garden aurora producers produce in their backyards before the sale, but according to squid, growers are asked to emphasize indigenous plants, herbs and vegetables, and of course non-invasive species.

“Indigenous plants are going to survive this winter,” says Donna Lewis of Paradise Aurora. “They are going to survive the drought; They are going to survive a little better than bad weather. Having said that, the extrinsic or non-native plants that we offer for sale will grow in aurora and should be suitable for most people’s gardens. Our price point will be a little easier on people’s wallets.

Squash adds: “It does not need to be replaced every year with native plants. Some exotic plants do not survive the winter, some only last for three to five years, and then need to be replaced.

Indigenous plants in the home garden, ornamental or otherwise, are important for the biodiversity of the area, they say, giving the bees a better chance of making the most important flower.

“It’s all about biodiversity; The higher the biodiversity, the healthier the environment will be, ”Lewis said. “The health of the environment, people will be healthier. In every spectrum, if we plant a lot of native trees, we will have a lot of native birds in our backyards. ”

As more and more people are turning to home gardening, Home Hardware is looking forward to partnering with Paradise Aurora to sell plants.

Sarah Fleming, director of the color department at Aurora Home Hardware, said she was bitten by a bed bug when the outbreak began and said the business was an easy choice to support the gardening and horticultural community.

Fleming says: “Because of the epidemic, I love gardening more. “I spend more time in my garden now than ever before because it reduces stress and makes me appreciate it more, and there are some plants that I don’t know about. I think it’s good [Garden Aurora educates] So do people who come to plant sales. Customers not only go for a beautiful plant, but also go for it with knowledge!

The garden will be sold at Aurora Home Hardware (289 Wellington St. East) on Sunday, May 29, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sales are just cash and the change is impressive.

After more than two years of gardening, Aurora is working hard to bring the sale of the plant to the customers, planning for their next big event. Gardens.

The tour is scheduled for June 26.

“This will be our first visit to our garden in two and a half years,” said Mrs. Lewis. “These are not commercial gardens, they are all patented so it shows what you can get out of your hat! In addition, members of the garden aurora can explain what plants are, they are there to explain some of the traps the owners have encountered. Gardening is always an adventure; Sometimes there is a calming effect. You may not think that something is working and it’s always been better! “
