Water Wise Garden Kit


Enjoy a vibrant garden with less water💧

🌱 Tired of a garden that’s either way too thirsty or often looks brown and wilted in the summer?

🌱 Here’s a quick way to get your own Water Wise Garden started.

🌱  Order your Water Wise Garden Kit for pick-up at the GreenUP Ecology Park Nursery (1899 Ashburnham Drive, Peterborough).
🌱  Receive 17 plants (7 different species) and a planting guide for only $100! (Details below.)

Orders will only be accepted as long as supplies last, or from July 21 through to August 28. Pick-up available from September 3-6, 10-13, and 17-20 during regular hours for the Ecology Park Nursery. If you want your kit sooner, just ask. We encourage planting in September because weather conditions are typically better for planting at that time.
