Plant lovers, we’ve got some tough news for you. According to a release on its website, the VanDusen Botanical Garden has cancelled its massive annual plant sale for the second year in a row. You can probably guess the reason why, but here’s a little more info anyway.

The plant sale attracts thousands of Vancouverites to the garden every April. However, the organizers are worried that they will not be able to bring in the volunteers needed to run the sale safely. Plus, the number of people expected to attend is just too high.

It’s a bummer, since the sale often includes some of the city’s rarer plants, and often at discount prices. While we can still visit the garden (with new restrictions), there is something neat about owning a rare orchid or an exotic tree or something.

Oh well, here’s hoping that by 2022 the VanDusen plant sale will be back up and running! In the meanwhile, we do suggest you head down to the garden on the next sunny day we get, for a little flower therapy.

Enjoy the day, folks!
