AND IT’S A WRAP!
Every last tree is gone! And, thanks to our beloved customers and supporters, we’re all set up for another year of Making Westport Beautiful. Heartfelt thanks to every one of you! We’ll leave the catalogue online for now so new visitors can get an idea of the kind of trees and shrubs we normally offer. If you’re new to our tree sale, feel free to drop us a line at email@example.com, and we’ll put you on our mailing list for next year’s sale, which should be getting underway in late November 2022.
If you’ve ordered trees this year, PICK-UP is currently scheduled for Saturday, May 14, 2022, at Soho’s Greenhouse, 43 Bedford Street, in Westport. You will receive an email confirming pick-up instructions approximately 3 weeks prior to the pick‑up day.
WESTPORT IN BLOOM’S 16th ANNUAL TREE SALE
The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second-best time is now!
OUR FUNDRAISER: Westport in Bloom is a small all-volunteer, non-profit organization in Westport, Ontario, devoted to helping keep our village beautiful. Everything we do is funded by our annual tree sale, and every penny we earn goes into meeting that goal.
At the same time, we consider the sale a public service that gives people a low-cost way to improve the value of their property, maintain our traditional tree canopy and protect the environment. A tree is also a great way to celebrate a wedding, welcome a new baby or remember someone special. In fact, the promise of a tree makes a super gift for any occasion, all wrapped up in dreams of springtime.
OUR TREES: This year we’re featuring nearly forty varieties of top-quality shade trees, flowering trees and fruit trees, with particular emphasis on trees that are native and/or attractive to pollinators – the bees, birds and insects on which our world depends for survival. Look for the trees marked BLOOMS CHOICE!
Many of our trees are 7 or 8 feet tall, and often significantly taller than indicated in our listings. They’ve been grown, shaped and root-pruned in a prize-winning commercial nursery, and delivered to Westport, where we pack the roots in bags with the proper amount of moisture, ready for pickup. Because most come with their roots wrapped in plastic, not in heavy pots of soil, they’re light to carry, easy to plant and quick to become established. With every tree, you’ll receive a package of mycorrhizae (an all-natural totally organic plant starter proven to enhance root health and development) and planting instructions.

SORRY, NO GUARANTEES OR REFUNDS. Trees well-watered and properly cared for will have an excellent survival rate – but unfortunately, we have no control over Mother Nature, and no profit margin: every penny we earn goes into helping keep our village beautiful. Thank you for your understanding, and…
THANK YOU for supporting Westport in Bloom!
February 19: ALL SOLD OUT!
