Selling Christmas flowers to feed Maple Ridge kids
Ridge.More and more local children are bringing home a backpack full of food every Friday. The Starfish Pack program was brought to Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows by the MeadowRidge Rotary Club, and last year, and has expanded rapidly. It began in September 2016 with 10 backpacks in one school, and the program is now distributing 69 backpacks weekly to seven local schools, said Meadowridge Rotary Club past president Ineke Boekhorst, the chair of the Starfish Pack committee.“The backpacks are given to hungry kids in our own backyard, who according to principals, teachers or councillors are needing assistance with food over the weekends,” she explained.“We are thinking the need is 150 to 175, across Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows,” said Boekhorst, the estimates based on the fact they are in seven out of 20 schools, where the need was identified earliest.At the present time, they aren’t looking for new children for the program, because the resources aren’t there to handle the demand yet.Each backpack contains two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, snacks and three pieces of fresh fruit. That’s a lot of food, and stretched over a school year, the cost for each student to receive a backpack each Friday throughout the enti...Mar 9, 2017

Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall was brightened with lush plants and bright flowers Saturday morning, during Pitt Meadows Garden Club’s annual fundraiser.
The sale raised $750 for the club, which will be used for an expert speaker to visit the monthly club meeting (every third Monday of the month), to pay rent for the hall, and to help fund an annual garden tour for members.
Also at the sale was Domenica Servedio, a garden club member who talked about canna lillies, and explained that winter serves as the fundamental time to prep the bulbs, before planting them outdoors.
Surrounded by moss in a bucket or pail, the bulbs should be sprayed with water every few days to a week, she said.
Then, come spring, the stem should be cut – with just enough left to stick out of the soil, “so you know where you planted i... (Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Times)Aug 15, 2016
Gardening: A local cut flower
So it was a pleasant surprise when I stumbled upon (while doing a residential garden design) a Pitt Meadows-based wholesale cut flower nursery, named after its first crop, a brilliant Dutch Iris called ‘Blue Magic’.
For over 30 years, Blue Magic Greenhouses Ltd. has been growing quality cut flowers for the local market.
Started in 1982 by Leo Captein, the nursery has grown to 12 acres in size and makes extensive use of rolling greenhouses (think glass houses set on rails) to trap heat naturally in order to extend the growing season and be able to use green manures on the exposed fallow plots.
This sort of crop rotation keeps pests and diseases to a minimum and it works better with the natural temperature cycles.
Captein began his cut flower business with some of the standards, including freesia, carnations and alstroemerias (Peruvian Lily).
Captein’s son Dave currently runs the nursery and was kind enough to give me a tour of the facilities, which included both field and greenhouse crops.
Together with his wife Stephanie, we walked through mass plantings of winterberry (Ilex verticillata), the bare stems and bright red drupes of which will adorn many of our homes this upcoming Christmas.
There were also fields of compact cranberry bushes, or Guelder roses (both viburnums), grown for their pure white flowers and translucent red berry clusters.
Massive rows of oriental lilies were equally impressive.
But like any commercially grown crop, Dave Captein is constantly on the lookout for viral diseases.
Perhaps the most spectacular flower displays were the many greenhouses filled from wall to wall with pink, white, blue and purple mophead hydrangeas (hydrangea macrophylla) in full bloom.
These are even highly desirable to the floral markets when they fade to green, as they are the perfect foil for brightly coloured flowers such as gerberas.
Another interesting crop was Dianthus barbatus ... (Maple Ridge News)
