The Society has been involved in the establishment of a number of other gardens containing heather displays. The most recent one is at the Sylvan Church on Shawnigan Mill Bay Road. It celebrates the life of Ina McDowell, one of our founding members who was also well known and loved in the community.
Welcome to the Vancouver Island Heather Society website.
The Society has rescheduled the annual heather sale to March of 2022. Looking for heathers? please go to your local nursery(s). If we can be of help in determining which heathers would work best in your garden please contact us.
Our Christmas luncheon will be postponed to a Spring open air event.
In the meantime everyone Happy Holidays, stay healthy, stay safe, and stay calm.
No events scheduled for the next while due to COVID-19
