The Sud-Ouest Arrondissement will be distributing free flowers and other plants on May 29th. The flowers and plants are distributed on a first-come first-served basis.  Get there early!  All that was left by 9:15 last year was a few shrubs and impatients.   The dogwood that I acquired last year is going strong.

Don’t forget to bring proof that you live in the Arrondiseement (ie. bill statement). This annual event is a great way to meet your neighbours and talk about gardening.

When: Saturday May 29th 2010. Starting at 9 AM…people start lining up around 8:45.

Where:

  • Parc Sir-George-Étienne-Cartier (rue Notre-Dame Ouest)
  • La Coalition de la Petite-Bourgogne (741, rue des Seigneurs)
  • Le Centre Saint-Charles (1055, rue Hibernia)
  • Le Parc Clifford (angle Hadley et Clifford à l’extrémité de la rue Laurendeau).

The Christmas tree pickup in the Sud-Ouest arrondissement will be on Wednesday January 13th and Wednesday January 20th.  Make sure you take off all of the decorations and tinsel before you put the tree on the curb.

The Christmas tree pickup service is available to most Montrealers.   To verify the dates and times the tree pickup, consult your arrondissement website.

Version française, cité sur le site de l’arrondissement Le Sud-Ouest:

Votre arbre de Noël a … droit à une seconde vie. On le transforme en copeaux pour le jardinage. Avant de le mettre à la rue, prenez bien soin de le débarrasser de ses décorations et de son emballage. Les collectes se feront les mercredis 13 et 20 janvier 2010.
