Over the coming weeks, the Toronto area plays host to several events that are geared to the
Jump on Spring”. This show brings together garden and horticultural societies from the GTA,
along with vendors selling seeds and other garden-related supplies, a flower competition, talks
and demonstrations. The Toronto Master Gardeners will also be on hand to answer any
questions you may have. Admission to the event is free of charge although a $2 donation is
Seedy Saturdays are also starting up in the next few weeks. For those of you that have never
heard of Seedy Saturdays, you’ll wish you had a long time ago.
Originating in Toronto in the 1990s, Seedy Saturdays are a seed exchange that takes place in
locations around Toronto and the GTA where you have the opportunity to borrow donate, or
return seeds to the Toronto Seed Library, or purchase seeds from a host of local seed farmers.
At the end of March, Canada Blooms rolls into Toronto. As Canada’s largest flower and garden
festival, it is a must attend show for anyone interested in gardening. I will likely write a couple of
blogs about this year’s festival including one on the event itself just prior to its opening day and
one reflecting on my visit.
