Plains of Abraham Showcasing Trees and Plants on May 11th

NationalBattlefieldsCommissionMay 5, 2014 – Québec – The National Battlefields Commission

During this month dedicated to trees and forest, the National Battlefields Commission invites nature lovers and budding horticulturists to its annual spring rendezvous, Sunday, May 11, from 11 a.m. to 4 :30 p.m. at the Great Celebration of Nature. This is a unique opportunity for the public to visit the greenhouses in a convivial atmosphere and absorb the first colours and smells of the plants soon to embellish the park. This year, the 19th edition will gather thirty exhibitors specializing in various environmental fields in an effort to promote exchanges with visitors. Families are welcome on the Plains of Abraham, where a wide range of activities awaits them, including the popular plant distribution of the Mon arbre à moi (My own tree) campaign.

The park’s greenhouses, among the oldest still active in Quebec, grow approximately 50,000 annual, biennial, and perennial plants that are needed, among other things, to beautify the Plains of Abraham and Des Braves Park. On this open house day you will see, exceptionally, how traditions can rub shoulders with pioneering horticulture. The staff of the National Battlefields Commission will be happy to share their knowledge with you and unsparingly provide sound horticultural and arboricultural advice.
