Canada Blooms, The Flower and Garden Festival, is a home show which exhibits displays from various landscape contractors and architects. The show is put on by the amazing people at Landscape Ontario and is made possible by the countless volunteers who help out with the show. The main purpose of the show is to promote our industry by showcasing some unique, and sometimes out there, designs that may be lurking in the minds of the selected garden builders. The envelope has been pushed, and now we’re on to pushing other stationary, when it comes to the creativity presented by some of these displays. The Canada Blooms design selection committee, a group of industry professionals who are in charge of reviewing all of the applications, has a tough job every year picking the most creative and inspiring designs. Yes that’s right. You have to be picked to get in! Unlike other home shows where you pay your fee for your display space and away you go, Canada Blooms won’t let you in if your design is not up to the standards they are looking to achieve. We were fortunate enough to have been selected for the last two years (’12, ’13) and our record is a perfect 3 for 3 with the 2014 show running from March 14-23 at the Direct Energy Center in Toronto.
Our plants will consist of many different ferns and grasses, Serviceberries, Pine, Spruce, Birch and a lot of native shrubs. We ordered a ton of daffodils that will provide vibrant splashes of colour around our garden.
Stay warn people! Spring is almost here!
