Communities in Bloom Programs and Projects

The Lambton Shores Committee has plenty of programs and projects on the go!  Check them out below:

Flower Colours

The 2019 colours are purple, orange and lime green. The community is encouraged to incorporate these colours in their gardens this year to create a unified look across Lambton Shores.

Our hanging baskets will include Supertunia Petunias in Royal Velvet, Supertunia in Honey and Creeping Jenny. Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Lime potato vine will also be included in our potted barrels.

Trash Bash Events

This is a volunteer-driven community clean-up effort to pick up roadside trash and litter in our parks. An event is organized in each community around Earth Day each year and again in July. 

Adopt-A-Pot or Plot

Adopters are responsible for watering, fertilizing, dead heading and weeding.  Committee members are happy to provide advice where needed!

This year's planters will contain Supertunia Petunias in Royal Velvet, Supertunia in Honey and Creeping Jenny.

Community Gardens

Community gardens continue to thrive in Grand Bend, Port Franks and Forest.

Native Tree Project

Plant a Native Tree on your property! 

Each year the committee selects 3 trees native to Lambton Shores and encourages the community to plant them. The 2019 tree selections are: the Native Red Maple, Acer rubrum, Basswood, Tilia americana and the Eastern White Pine, Pinus strobus.
