Deep Cove Garden Club warmly welcomes visitors and new members. Our garden club is based in the Deep Cove area of North Vancouver in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Meetings are held in the ground-floor multi-purpose room of Parkgate Community Centre, 3625 Banff Court, just off Mount Seymour Road, at 7:00pm on the fourth Thursday of each month, except July, August and December.
Date of next meeting: Thursday 23rd March 2017 at 7:00 pm with guest speaker, Ron Knight talking to us on Rhododendrons, using many examples from Caron Gardens, Pender Harbour.
Also our March meeting is members’ last chance to order and pay for $10 bags of ‘Unique’ Manure from Cors de Lint. ‘Unique’ is an organic pig manure absorbed into wood flakes and composted, so that it is full of not only NPK but more importantly micronutrients.
