BCLH’s “Rewilding” service is available again for the April – June 2019 migration and planting season. If you’re considering making your driveway a green one, converting over a portion of your yard and garden to no- or low-mow native plants, or you’d like to take practical action to save the birds, contact me. Also, subscribe to the monthly newsletter, and send in any DIY questions you have!
Due to the popularity of this post (the fact that you’re reading it), please set yourself an alert to check back at BLCH by the end of April. I’ll be doing an annual blog post as soon as the information is available on when the plant give-away weekends take place across various parts of Montreal. I’ll do my best to find out when it is at least by the first weekend in May — which is when you might want to go shopping for seedlings, anyway.Jane, april 2019
2018: This is just a quick note to announce that it’s tomorrow when the Sud-Ouest, and many other boroughs in Montreal, give away flowers and herbs in their annual Bellissement campaign.
It begins at 9 and lineups are long, but sometimes, depending on where you go, coffee and snacks are graciously provided by a sponsor.
Bring a bin or box to carry home your plants, and a bucket for compost.
Check the above link for location details and search out whether your own borough (if not Sud-Ouest) is offering the same this weekend.
If you found this post useful and would like to see a mailing list that announces things like it, get your email on the list.
Once I have enough subscribers, I’ll start a newsletter for in between blog posts, with DIYs, Q&As, and event announcements.
