Annual Show and Plant Sale

VAVGS' Annual Show and Plant Sale will be held Saturday, May 3, 2014 in the Floral Hall at VanDusen Botanical Garden, West 37th Ave & Oak Street, in Vancouver.  This event is open to the public from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and admission is free. 

Visitors will see some beautiful and unusual gesneriads in the show, all of them grown by VAVGS members.  There will also be an opportunity to purchase plants from a large selection - come early for the best choices.  Plants like these aren't available in local retail outlets and would cost considerably more if ordered from growers on-line. 

You may well find starter plants of the prize-winners among the many plants on the sales tables, and you'll love the very reasonable prices.  Experts will be on hand to provide advice on how to get the most enjoyment from these easy-to-grow plants.
