Now It Feels Like Spring!

Leave a comment

Well, so much for the snow. It lasted less than a day, and now it feels like spring is on the way. We’re hitting highs of 7C/45F today and will enjoy a day full of sun. (Average high is minus 2C for this time of year).

While it is still too early to get out in the garden and start working, it certainly isn’t too early to start thinking about it.

And with that in mind, I’d like to share two upcoming garden festivals that this area enjoys every year.

The Stratford Garden Festival, March 1-4 has become one of the most popular over the past few years.

And of course, Canada Blooms, March 16-25 in Toronto.

Both shows are full of great speakers, interesting garden designs and of course, garden shopping.

If you’re itching to get out there and start working, planning, changing, moving, etc. etc., but it’s too early in your area, check out your upcoming garden shows – it’s the next best thing!

I'm a Horticulturalist, Master Gardener and member of the Garden Writers Association who enjoys playing in the dirt and experimenting with different veggies, plants and flowers in my Zone 5 garden. Check out my website http://www.wowmygarden.ca With a recent addition of a greenhouse, my newest passion is growing-your-own. And what fun that is. Yes, there's the odd failure, but there's nothing quite as satisfying as walking through the veggie patch collecting dinner.
