Part of the enjoyment of
volunteering is talking to
gardeners of like mind and
sharing information or helping
with perceived problems.

At last years Canada Blooms show the perceived problem
was from a woman who thought the lack of ants was part
of the reason her peonies did not bloom. Her question to
the team at hand was,"Do you know where I can buy ants?"
at this years Canada Blooms Show the problem was again
lack of blooms but one person relayed that she had a
friend who had a hedge of peonies but did not like the
blooms so every year she cuts off all the buds so as not
to detract from the backdrop the bushes create for her
other flowers in the garden. Go figure.
