More Seedy Saturdays!

Back-to-back Seedy Saturday and Sunday this weekend. We will be bringing the Beaux Arbres Native Plants line of wildflower seeds to the Ottawa Seedy Saturday at the Ron Kolbus Centre in Britannia Park on Saturday.

On Sunday, we are heading out to Perth Royal Canadian Legion Hall for the Perth Seedy Sunday. This will be our first time at the Perth Seedy Sunday and we are looking forward to meeting enthusiastic gardeners looking to help pollinators, attract hummingbirds and butterflies and add beautiful wildflowers to their gardens.

We will be promoting Wild Lupin as our Seedy Special this year. We had abundant seed set on our wild lupins last summer. This beautiful blue flower requires sandy soil and is best started from seed as it hates root disturbance and it does not like growing in pots. At one time, Wild Lupin was the host plant for the Karner Blue Butterfly, which has been extirpated from Canada. There is a captive breeding programme using stock from the population in the US which still exists, although it is threatened by habitat loss.

  1. Hi Trish,

    We really wish we could meet you in Perth on Sunday but we’ll be on the road, heading to Albany. Fly to Phoenix the next day. I would love to have some of your wild lupin seeds. In fact, if you could reserve three packets for me I’ll pay you when we return.
