The 13th Annual Nelson Garden Festival was a good way to stock up on plants and catch up with gardening neighbours and friends today.
Sixty tables full of vegetables, flowers, and fruit trees lined the a portion of Baker and Kootenay Street, ready to find new homes with ready gardeners. Basil, tomato plants, seed potatoes, irises, seeds, rosemary, strawberries, roses and even green tea trees could be found. What’s a garden with out rich soil, a truck load of manure was loaded and ready as what’s a garden without rich soil.
Shoppers filled their wagons, wicker baskets, and even a few dog packs to tote their new transplants home.
This popular annual event is hosted by the West Kootenay Eco-Society.
