It’s been a long winter, longer than most it seems. March is traditionally when the gardeners among us head out to Garden shows with our cameras and wallets, searching out ideas, plants and seeds to start our gardens. 2021 has turned out to be a bit different, with no Garden shows, shortages of seeds and online retailers scrambling to fill demands.
Right now as the Hamamelis Mollis (Chinese witch hazel) and Galanthus (snowdrops) are just beginning to bloom, the Society has been planning for months already. Our annual Seedy Saturday event on March 27th is going virtual this year with our brand new website www.miltonseedysaturday.com . We have planned an entire day of online speakers, a virtual seed swap, local online vendors, children’s photo contest and much more. Our website also features sponsorship opportunities for businesses and individuals who wish to support us and our work to beautify Milton and serve the gardeners of town.
