The Victoria Day long weekend might as well be known as the “garden weekend” as it is the traditional kick-off to planting and landscaping. Rosslanders are hoping the last of the snows are behind them, and are eager to squeeze some edible or colourful plants out of the abbreviated growing season. In anticipation of backyard toil, the Rossland Mountain Market is hosting a Garden Festival on Thursday, May 15.

Vendors will be on hand from 3 to 6 p.m., offering seeds, bedding plants, herbs, ornaments, décor and anything else to help your garden thrive or look beautiful. Local entertainment, “Whisky Jacks”, will provide musical background, while delicious food will be available throughout to help fend off the munchies.

 

This is a great opportunity to celebrate the return of the sun in a vibrant community atmosphere. Rub shoulders with friends and neighbours while stocking up on all of your gardening needs.
