Walk-about – Anna’s perennials, Tuesday Sept. 14th, 6pm

Looking back at the list of “Walk-abouts” we had planned for this year ….we’ve not been able to successfully get out! Covid restrictions and bad weather have held us back.
 
Well we’re not giving up! We hope next Tuesday, Sept. 14th to visit Anna’s perennials. 6pm.
 
You must pre-register by contacting our president Dianne Tedford. () Members also have her phone number in the yearbook and would also have received an email with full contact info.
 
Anna is originally from Poland, and came to Canada in 1989. In Poland she spent 2 years at Horticultural College, and worked at the local Farmers Co-op. In her spare time she worked in local orchards, and grew and sold some of her own plants.
 
After moving to her “cottage” from the Toronto area with her new husband in 1994, her gardens were growing, and after two years, she started selling a few plants and seedlings out of that location .. thus Anna’s Perennials was started.
 
Anna’s European background, and formal schooling at College gives her a different perspective towards her style of planting, and incorporating many of the plants that are not popular here, but are in other parts of the world.
 
Anna is a mad gardener as she is always looking for a new plant, collecting seeds and trying to grow plants that others say aren’t possible in our area.
 
For several years, Anna has been giving talks/demonstrations to various horticultural groups in the area on many different topics, such as ‘winter hardy cactus and other succulents ,’ ‘perennial grasses’, my favorite plants’ .
 
We look forward to a personal tour of Anna’s gardens.
 
63 Shoreview Road, Lindsay.
