Plant sale This Saturday!



Tomatoes!

We’re bringing out the plants!


While we are a few weeks away from “last frost date” we'll be selling plants this Saturday! We will be selling plants every Saturday until they sell out!


All our varieties are selected based on production and more importantly GREAT TASTE!!!


A complete list of what’s for sale is below


This week we’ll bring out the hardier herbs like thyme, rosemary, sage, parsley and chives. We also have lettuce, rhubarb, wild violets and chard. We’ll have tomatoes, basil, nasturtiums and eggplants for sale. You will have to keep them protected from frost, but they’re beautiful and isn’t it fun to start early :)... but actually, May is next WEEK!!!!???


And although we don't have everything a nursery would have, our neighbours at Les Serres Bourgeon Greenhouses do!!!



We will also have:


  • a variety of our cut-flowers and perennial tubers for sale! Not all of them are ready this week, but will be available in the next couple of weeks. Eucalyptus, lisianthus, zinnia, delphinium and more!

  • Someone with farm experience (either Jess, Robin or Katherine) working at the store to offer plant advice!

  • Bean-Fair coffee on tap and organic sweet treats for sale.


Make a day of it! We have picnic tables and you can walk around the farm. Or you can stop by Gatineau park for a hike and swing by Wakefield for a meal!
