What's Blooming at the Park
Plants are beginning to wake up and we expect to see spring bulbs, early perennials and the ever hardy weeds popping up throughout the Park soon. With the recent rain and sunny days ahead we hope to see crabapples and spring shrubs in bloom soon. There is barely a square foot of space remaining in our greenhouses as perennials and other plants are happily growing so they can be put out for sale sometimes in May.
Sale of Plants and Containers
Thank you once again for supporting our annual Mother's Day Rose Sale. After checking our own garden beds and planting some new roses, we may have a few more roses to offer gardeners. These will be set out on the patio for sale.
We will also have a selection of Perennials, Dahlias, Tomatoes, Mixed Annual Containers and other plants for sale. Some of these are being set out this week with others to follow as the night time temperatures stay well above the freezing mark. Most of our plants will also be available online to be picked up curbside.
Gift Shop & Patio
The Gift Shop is now open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. We will be following government guidelines and limiting the number of visitors in the building to 2. Masks are required.
Thank you to all our customers for understanding our closure in 2020. It is nice to be opening again and we hope you have the opportunity to visit and see our wonderful new items for sale.
Our patio will have plants for sale this year but tables and chairs have been removed due to Covid concerns. Washrooms are not available this year.
Thank you to everyone for their support of the Park by purchasing roses and perennials in 2020. As we seem to be in a second year of COVID-19 restrictions, we hope that everyone has the opportunity to visit the Park and enjoy the gardens.
The Park is a non-profit charitable organization independently operated and maintained by volunteers on land leased from the City of St. Albert. All funds raised from plant or giftware sales and garden rentals go directly to the gardens for operation and maintenance. With restrictions on our normal fundraising activities this year, we do thank everyone who has made a donation to the Park through our website (Donate here), in person (donation box on the patio can be accessed from outside of the gate) or mailed to our office. Your support of the Park is greatly appreciated.
