This is a reminder to students and families to please bring in your small potted plant this Monday (May 1st).
For those families who chose to donate to the garden, I will be purchasing some plants with this money over the weekend!
I am re-posting the project information below.
Thank you for your support and generosity!
I priced out the cost of small plants (Save on Foods and Canadian Tire). 4” plants range in price from about $1.29 – $4.99 (much less than what I put down on the form!).
If your child wishes to bring in a larger plant, the 8″ ones are about $6.99 – $9.99 or they could bring in a few of the smaller ones. However, one small 4″ plant is plenty!
Here are a few ideas of butterfly food flowers:
- Bee Balm
- Buddleia (Butterfly Bush)
- Black Eyed Susan
- Blazing Star
- Honey Suckle
- Purple Cone Flower
It does not necessarily have to be a plant for butterflies (although that would be a fantastic!). Your child may simply wish to bring in a favourite flower and anything bright in colour would be great! The only requirement is that it is an outdoor plant.
Here is the form, for those of you who missed it earlier in April:
