What a wonderful way to spend the day. We ran into friends from past shows and made new ones. There were demonstrations. One from our friends at Blossom Hill Nursery on Propagating Peonies. Very informative.
Many, many vendors selling garden related wares were available to entice your pocketbook. I left with a few less dollars and a few more orchids, a jar of honey and maple syrup.
|Canadian Peony Society Booth|
|Information pamphlets and seeds for sale|
|Showing how to divide a root|
Hundreds of visitors to the show and many stopped by to ask how to divide their peony to give to the children for there homes. Are peonies deer resistant, chipmunk resistant? How many colours are there? Do you really need ants to make them bloom?
If you have a day to volunteer at a booth you should sign up. It really is a great way to learn about peonies and meet people who are interested in this wonderful plant.
