June 20th Speaker
Let's Talk Hydrangeas
Doors open at 7:00 pm
Speaker begins at 7:30 pm
Hydrangeas are an integral part of the summer garden with new cultivars introduced every year. During this talk we will look more closely at identifying and pruning several species of this genus. We will discuss some of your favourites and which of the cultivars are pollinator friendly.
Jill Wright is a long-time member of the Richmond Garden Club and previous Chair of the Vancouver Master Gardeners Association. This will be her 15th year leading the volunteer group that maintains the perennial gardens in Paulik Park which is located in central Richmond.
Giving Back to the Community
SDGC's purpose is to promote the love of gardening, to protection and conservation of native trees, plants, and wildlife, and to work for the beautification of South Delta.
We actively maintain 3 public gardens to showcase our efforts. Members volunteer their time and plants, twice weekly. It's a friendly way to meet other members. We share our knowledge and skills while maintaining these gardens.
Each garden has a lead gardener to coordinate efforts. Join us; have fun digging in the dirt and learn as you go.

The Bees Need Your Help!!
Neonicotinoid pesticides are slowly killing bees. 75% of the world's honey is now contaminated with bee-killing pesticides.
Please educate yourself and make sure you are not part of the problem.
