Tired of Mosquitoes?
We have noticed an increase in the pesky mosquito population with so much excess water so far this season. Perhaps it is time to truly put the 'Citrosa' Geranium to the test! Claimed to keep mosquitoes, black flies, and other biting insects at bay, try planting a few around your outdoor living spaces and let us know if they truly are a 'Mosquito Fighter".

Even if it has no effect, its refreshing citronella scent and attractive foliage will make it worthwhile. There is a good selection of Citrosa Geraniums in 4" pots on table B17, as well as the new scented geranium Lemona.
Other lemon scented plants that are worth trying out are Lemon Grass, Lemon Verbena and Lemon Scented Eucalyptus. These can all be found on table A-16 South alongside other herbs.
More Seed Potatoes
Our final shipment of Seed Potatoes from Abetkoff Farms in Grand Forks has now arrived.
There will be 5lb bags of Warba, Norland, Bintje, Columba and Pontiac as well as others available.
Columba is a newer variety that is very similar to Yukon Gold in colouring, flavour and storage capability.
