At the Mix and Mingle after the November 14 meeting, we discussed the information provided by our speaker Jay Rastogi on Invasive Plants, using excellent resources published by the Invasive Species Council of BC. We ran out of the free “Grow me Instead” brochures. The more detailed “Grow Me instead” booklets, offered for sale at $2.00, were also very popular. Both of these publications can be viewed in beautiful color online at beplantwise.ca under the ‘Resources’ tab.
Are you busy potting up plants for our Spring Sale? Now is a great time to get them into pots, and then heel them into your veggie garden so they’re looking great come April!

Spam Emails – Several members with @shaw.ca email addresses have reported receiving spam emails.
Shaw has given this advice for dealing with such emails:
- “forward” the spam to email@example.com. (This is a department at Shaw)
- mark (label) the message as spam.
- delete the message
This should fix the problem.
The Website committee is excited to have some new members. Thank you Jan, Allison and Shirley for your willingness to learn something new! Our goal is to make the website relevant, fresh and interesting, and we are always open to suggestions to this end. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org
There’s a new article on the Articles of Interest page about Selecting Plants for Pollinators. The article was published by The Pollinator Partnership and North American Pollinator Protection Campaign.
