Vancouver Shade Garden Society’s Annual Show on Sunday, July 15, 2012, in the Floral Hall at VanDusen Botanical Garden, at Oak and 37th in Vancouver.

There is no entry charge.  The Show will be open to the public from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
We will also have plant sales and other sales tables open from 11:00am to 4pm outside the Floral Hall.

This is a judged show, with ribbons and rosettes awarded for plant entries in 9 different shade plant divisions, including Begonias, Ferns, Fuchsias, Gesneriads, Hostas, Other Shade Plants, Blooming, Other Shade Plants, Non-Blooming, Shade Plant Displays, and Novice Exhibitors.  We also award two trophies, the Karna Bro Best in Show Trophy as decided by our Show judges, and our Pat Dredge People’s Choice Trophy to the favourite plant at our show, as voted by all attendees at the Show.

Come and find out just what can be grown in a shade garden!  You’ll be amazed at the variety and quality of plants in our Show.  We hope to see you there.  I’ve also included with this emailed invitation a couple of photos from our Show last year and a promo page for this year’s Show.

Yours in gardening,
