 BGSS booth popular at Calgary Horticultural Society Garden Show

April 13 - 14, 2013: The Botanical Gardens of Silver Springs' display booth was of great interest to many people attending the Garden Show at Spruce Meadows.

Our booth was adorned with flowering geraniums which added a welcome burst of colour to the space.


Popular among the attendees at this event was our large screen TV which continuously played videos of the various gardens accompanied by great background music.

Raffle tickets for a handmade quilt were also available for purchase, with the winner to declared on April 19 at the Silver Springs Community Centre.

The lucky winner of this raffle is a local Silver Springs resident, Jordan Starke and his fiancÚ Marion Chappell.

Despite it being a very cool and snowy weekend for a Garden Show, we were fortunate to have had the opportunity to greet so many visitors, give them information about the gardens, and to answer most of their queries.

The one comment we kept hearing from visitors was that they were unaware our gardens even existed! After providing directions as to our location, we were impressed by the number of people who showed a real interest in visiting our glorious gardens this summer.
