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

Hanging Basket Flowers - Red and whiteThe Year of the Garden has been proclaimed for the year 2022. It is a Centennial Celebration of Canada’s horticulture sector from January 1 to December 31, 2022, will commemorate Canada’s rich garden heritage, celebrate today’s vibrant garden culture, and create important legacies for a sustainable future. To celebrate this, they are encouraging everyone to plant red flowers in 2022.

Results from a survey taken in the fall determined the colour combination Lambton Shores would use in 2022 would be red and white. 

Hanging baskets will include Supertunias in Really Red, Snowstorm Giant Snowflake and Variegated Vinca Vine this year.

Trash Bash

Each year on or around Earth Day, Lambton Shores Communities in Bloom hosts their annual trash bash - an initiative to clean up our neighbourhoods after winter. Everyone is encouraged to keep the initiative going throughout the year! If you see trash on the ground while you are out in your neighbourhood, pick it up and throw it in your trash receptacle. As always, please remember to continue practicing physical distancing and proper hygiene practices as recommended by Lambton Public Health.

It is imperative that we continue to practice physical distancing and use proper hygiene practices at the gardens to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.
