Toronto Botanical Garden has a fundraising garden tour every year. This year the garden tour, Through the Garden Gate, is in The Kingsway. Is it worth going to? My verdict is…
Twenty years ago I decided to start a garden maintenance company. I was fresh out of university, and had worked at low-paying jobs in garden centres, seed companies, and landscaping and garden maintenance companies. I had very little money to buy garden equipment, so could buy only the most essential equipment.
Corona secateurs, one of the 11 essential gardening maintenance tools.
This week’s really, really cold temperatures has me stuck indoors for hours. Sucks. But it got me thinking, is this cold weather good for something?
I’ve heard gardens are a metaphor for life. Lofty, idealistic words, I thought, and possibly a pile of crap. Well, nature provides.
This summer is shaping up to be a scorcher in southern Ontario. With this heat and little rainfall, the least we can do for our plants (even our drought-tolerant ones) is to water them.
But before rushing off to water, give some thought to the costs involved to water resources and to your bank balance.
I’ve a bone to pick with the official website of Earth Day.
