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).

In past years there has been free compost and top soil available too.
