Oct. 27, 2009, Toronto – From March 17 to 21, 2010, Canada Blooms
returns to Toronto to transform its new location – the Direct Energy
Centre into Canada’s largest flower and garden festival. This year the
Festival celebrates the best of Canadian gardens and explores the
tradition of gardening and horticultural excellence from across the
country.
 
Canada Blooms 2010 will feature a paradise bursting with six acres of
glorious gardens in full bloom, more than 100,000 square feet of
green-thumb shopping, over 200 hours of seminars, workshops and
demonstrations, a special children’s area and more.
 
“For 14 years, Canada Blooms has been one of the first signs of spring
for Canadian garden-lovers,” says Gerry Ginsberg, General Manager,
Canada Blooms. “And because the official first day of spring falls in
the middle of the Festival, we’re planning to welcome it in style.”
 
Canada Blooms is a not-for-profit volunteer-driven event which promotes
awareness of horticulture and offers a platform to showcase outstanding
floral and landscape products and services. To date, over $500,000 in
Canada Blooms’ show proceeds have been reinvested into community
horticultural projects. This year’s proceeds from Canada Blooms will
benefit charitable horticultural organizations across Ontario.
 
The 2010 Festival features:
-Outdoor Living Central Gardens from presenting sponsor, The Home
Depot. This garden includes a private retreat and patio. Home Depot
will also host a series of speakers providing great ideas for home and
gardens on the ‘You Can Do It’ stage.
-Jackson-Triggs and Inniskillin return with the ‘Niagara Wine Garden’
where visitors can experience the ambiance of Ontario’s premier
wineries in an urban setting.
-Produced by the Garden Club of Toronto, Canada Blooms guests will have
the opportunity to show off their green thumb in Canada’s largest open
flower competition taking place throughout the Festival.
-The popular Canada Blooms Marketplace is back this year and bigger
than ever. Discover new treasures for your garden as you shop along
Pick Ontario Avenue and choose from designer innovations, including
outdoor living accessories, the newest plants and the latest in
gardening gear and décor.
