May 24, 2012, Toronto — A new pop-up garden shop is sprouting in the heart of the city.

On May 26 and 27 and June 2 and 3, the 1090Z Urban Garden Centre will host  an outdoor market where local can purchase a plethora of plants, pots, produce, flowers, herbs, vegetables, soil, outdoor furnishings, and more.

Local delivery service will be offered by Country Fresh Market & Garden, making it easier for downtown dwellers to get growing.


The pop-up will also offer free workshops led by experts in a number of areas, including:

  • Scott Torrance Landscape Architects Inc. on how to use green roof technology to create vertical gardens and moveable planters
  • Advice from gardening expert and author Steven Biggs
  • Gardening secrets from Sweetpea's, a Roncesvalles' florist and landscape design shop
  • Organic farming workshops from Fresh City Farms
  • Raised container gardening workshops from the Backyard Urban Farm Co.

The pop-up garden centre will take place at 109 Ossington Ave. in Toronto. The centre's hours of operation will be 10:00 am to 4:00 pm each day the shop is open.
