cbcb2Next month’s Canada Blooms redefines “Flower Power” with a celebration of gardens, displays and special guests that encompass the idealism and optimism of the ’60s, the inspirational power of gardens and flowers, and the eco-savvy future of horticulture in Canada. From March 12-16, Toronto’s Metro Convention Centre will be transformed into Canada’s largest flower and garden festival, showcasing outstanding floral and landscape products and services.

And because this year Canada Blooms is taking place during March Break, the Toronto Botanical Garden will run a special children’s program from 10-5. Other highlights of the 2008 Canada Blooms Festival include:

• The Home Depot Outdoor Living Central area will present topics such as urban gardening, container gardening, ECO options, low water usage, Terracycle, vertical planting, and more.

• A showcase for Communities in Bloom, presented by Tourism Ireland.

• Increasingly, people want to support their local economy by purchasing products grown in Ontario. Yet research shows that one in five don’t know the origin of the flowers and potted plants they buy. The Pick Ontario area will showcase the over 50 varieties of cut flowers and 150 varieties of potted plants produced in Ontario.

Now in its 12th year, Canada Blooms Festival was originally founded by Landscape Ontario and The Garden Club of Toronto to bring together the very best of the garden industry and community.
