Cultivate Montreal, Albert Mondor (horticulturist) and Nicolas Cadilhac (me, for PlantCatching) are pleased and proud to invite you to a big plant sharing event in late May, during the great Cultivons le Plateau fest. It's easy to take part: you simply offer one or several plants that you first pre-register on PlantCatching (so that everyone can see a complete list - the green button at the top), and maybe you will go home with some of the other plants offered by your fellow gardeners. Please visit the website for more details and the rules: http://plantcatching.com/en/partagevegetal

Do you know me? I'm Poison Ivy!
Don't touch me without gloves, do not burn me, and certainly don't let your pets eat me! If my leaves deposit oil (urushiol) on your skin, your skin will be itchy, red and may blister. Wash thoroughly with special solutions you can obtain from your local pharmacist to remove the oil and to help heal.
Heritage Perennials has launched a new website dedicated to their line of alpine and rock garden plants. Also listed on the site are their Top Ten perennials and their 2007 plant of the year.
