Weather is going to be lovely this coming Mother’s Day weekend and is just great for our 10th Annual Plant Sale which will be held outdoor at London Heritage Farm on Saturday and Sunday, May 7th & 8th, 2016 from 10 am to 5 pm. Over the years, the London Heritage Farm’s Annual Plant Sale has become a tradition that the gardening community will look forward to every year. Most single plants put up for sale in this event come from our own perennial garden, greenhouse and nursery. There will be a good selection of perennials, annuals, herbs, hanging baskets, tomato seedlings and succulent arrangements. Each child will receive a free surprise plant at checkout and everyone can enter the daily draw for a chance to win a beautiful hanging basket.

If you are planning to bring mom and families for the Mother’s Day Tea at the Tea Room which will be open the same weekend from 12 to 5 pm, please be sure to make your reservation now as there has already been a lot of advanced bookings.

Clean up and prepare for the Annual Plant Sale

Last Saturday, a group of enthusiastic volunteers and members have joined a great day of work out at the grounds and gardens to clean up the debris and waste left over from the long winter. Many have brought along their families and even pets to have a work day outing surrounded by blooming tulips and other spring flowers. Bruce, Barbara and Mary Lou were there to serve the BBQ’s and drinks to the hardworking volunteers and members.

Thanks to Jane and other gardening volunteers for all the hard works in trimming, pruning and keeping the forever beauty of the Heritage Gardens. In the small greenhouses and plant nursery at the back of the Heritage Gardens, they have also spent days in seeding, growing and nourishing plants that will be put up for sale on the upcoming Annual Plant Sale to be held on the weekend of May 7 and 8, 2016.

It’s Spring! It’s Easter! Let’s celebrate!

Today is the March Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and officially marks the first day of Spring! Even though we have been hit by weird weather recently, we can still see clear signs of Spring in the Heritage Gardens with budding plants and blooming spring flowers. Tulips are late to bloom and we won’t be seeing that many around the Farmhouse this coming Easter.

The Tea Room will feature an Easter Tea with special goodies including an Easter Eggs Tart and a Chick Cookie served along with a scone and tea. Some specially sourced Easter gifts are up for sale in the Gift Shop. All visiting guests can enter for the Easter Basket Draw.
