Get a sneak preview of what's in store at this year's 10-day show
The first Canada Blooms International Garden
This will be the first year that Canada Blooms hosts an international garden. Landscape architect Ronald Holbrook has designed a garden that reflects Taipei, Taiwan’s horticulture and gardening history. Monday, March 19, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., officials from the Government of Canada, Province of Ontario and the mayor of Toronto will welcome representatives from Taiwan and Taipei.
The Garden Club of Toronto’s floral carpet
I look forward to checking out the allée with 24-foot raised beds of floral carpet that the Garden Club of Toronto is going to create.
An incredible speaker series
I encourage anyone going to Canada Blooms to check out at least one presentation in the speaker series. Every day there will be gardening demos and talks from a variety of gardening personalities. Here is the schedule. Bring a notebook and pen—and your camera!
