May 2017 news:

Heirloom tomatoes the star of Mother’s Day weekend plant and farm sale at Shamrock Farm, 2276 Anderton Road, Comox

May 12, 13, 14, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

COMOX VALLEY— Plant a taste of history this season with Shamrock Farm’s heirloom tomato plants. Cherry, beefsteak, and greenhouse seedlings are just a few of the 30 varieties available at the three-day plant sale, Mother’s Day weekend, May 12-14.

 

Heirloom seeds are passed down from gardener to gardener. Each variety is unique in colour, appearance and taste, often sweeter than those found in grocery stores. Shades of red, yellow, orange, and green tomatoes will bring colour to the garden and the kitchen this summer.

 

In addition to tomato plants, herbs, lavender, and 11 varieties of pepper seedlings are also waiting to be discovered. From sweet to hot, mini Tinker Bell and lunchbox-sized, to the gourmet Spanish Padrons, there’s a pepper for every palate. With hundreds of plants to choose from, Shamrock Farm is the perfect place to start the growing season.

 

Sown in Shamrock Farm’s greenhouse, all tomato plants are non-GMO and labelled with the seed variety and history; heirloom, heritage, open-pollinated, or hybrid. Shamrock Farm has sourced seeds from local savers, Vancouver Island farms, West Coast Seeds, Bakers Creek Heirlooms, Renee’s Garden, and Johnny’s Selected Seeds.

 

A working farm, Shamrock Farm also creates fresh goat’s milk soap with milk from their friendly goats, organic lavender oils and creams from lavender harvested on the farm, and handcrafted farmhouse trays. All equally delightful as Mother’s Day gifts.

 

Admission to the farm is always free. Farm-friendly footwear is strongly recommended. Plant reservations are not accepted. First come, first served. Purchases can be made by cash or cheque.
