Rick and Raymond Van Bugnum of All Seasons Garden Centre have created 48 hanging baskets for downtown Aldergrove’s street beautification program this summer.
The baskets should be in full foliage by the end of May, when they will be hung on the street lights, and then the summer watering program begins with a crew of volunteers keeping the baskets lush and lovely.
The baskets should be in full foliage through to the end of September, depending on the weather conditions.
The Aldergrove Business Association has recruited volunteers, who will be operating the watering system from a truck and tank, to ensure the baskets don’t dry out in the hot summer months.
The baskets are a joint effort by the Aldergrove Business Association and Langley Township and are all premium brand flowers fed by slow-release fertilizer. This year’s program replaces the hanging basket program formerly funded and operated by Langley Township and which was axed in this year’s budget.
Ray and Rick and their father founded All Seasons Garden Centre here.
