Each meeting of the Grandview Garden Club features a special speaker on a topic relevant to Vancouver gardeners. Bring your ideas, questions, gardening concerns. We meet at the Britannia Centre "LRC" (under the library), 7–9 p.m., on the second Thursday of each month.
Club dues are $20 per calendar year or $4 to drop in.
The club is an offshoot of Britannia Neighbours, the group that looks after the Napier Square Greenway at Britannia and that puts on the East Van Garden Tour every June.
At our meeting this week, there was some discussion about mason bees and wasps that prey on them. Member Chris Chow has sent along the following two links related to our discussion, as well as a couple of photos from her garden, one showing her bee condo, and the other a mason bee alighting on a daffodil.
If you would like to host honey bees in your own garden (or would like to buy local honey or find out more about beekeeping), one of our new Garden Club members, Kathy Lau, has sent along this "Six Legs Good" link.
