Valley plant sale

Gardens are sprouting through The Valley, and it’s time for the Atlantic Canada Rare and Unusual Plant Sale in Annapolis Royal.

Now in its eighth year, the sale was started by horticulturalist Jill Covill.  She began a community magnolia tree planting project 20 years ago, with 30 different cultivars and more than 100 trees, turning Annapolis Royal into a magnolia capital.

People come from as far away as Ontario to get rare plants here.
