COME HELP US RESCUE HUNDREDS OF CANNA RHIZOMES FOR HUMMINGBIRDS!
One of the many friends of the Garland Community Garden, Rich Resser, has secured hundreds of beautiful canna rhizomes from a company that sells them. The season for planting Cannas ends the last day of August so the dealer is unable to sell them. Planting near the end of August still gives them the 10 to 12 weeks they need to establish before the first frost in our area which typically comes around November 16. Your bed of Cannas will come back year after year.
BENEFITS FOR YOU AND ANY CHILD YOU MAY BRING TO THIS EVENT
You will have the contented feeling that comes from being an active part of your community and . . .

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON SATURDAY!
We will be set up in the shade of one of the large old trees by our turquoise picnic table that Good Sam’s of Garland donated to us. It is always cool under the protected canopy of a large old tree.
