Springtime is bringing rain sun wind rain sun wind as usual to Whanganui, with a few hail-storms thrown in here and there. It’s really time to get those young gourd plants out into the garden. We still have plenty of seeds here at Whanganui Regional Museum, so come in any time (10am-4.30pm) to pick up a packet (including a handy information pamphlet) from one of our friendly visitor services staff…that’s Jilly holding the seed packet. If you don’t have time to grow the seeds, we have some beautiful healthy young plants here too. They are a good size and ready to go in the ground. Then cross your fingers and toes that we don’t get any more hailstorms.
