MISSISSAUGA:
February 28, 2011 . . .
Now is the time to plan your best garden
ever, say the International Home & Garden Show’s garden rescue
crew. As the crocuses begin to bud, horticultural luminaries Mark
Cullen, Frank Ferragine, Denis Flanagan, Marjorie Harris, Frank
Kershaw, Ed Lawrence, Marjorie Mason, Cristina daSilva and other
green thumbs are gathering at the event’s Successful Gardening Show
to plant some ideas that will make outdoor living spaces more
beautiful and sustainable. With so much talent, plus aisles of
garden exhibits, and the 19th annual Ontario Horticultural
Association Plant and Flower show, Successful Gardening combines
practical garden products and authoritative advice March 31st through
April 3rd at the International Centre.

 

OHA
Plant and Flower Competition

The
centrepiece is the Ontario Horticultural Association’s Plant and
Flower Competition. More than 2,400 square feet is dedicated to
showcasing OHA members’ gorgeous plant designs in numerous
categories. With the theme “Just About Time” this year’s
breathtaking amateur flower show is not to be missed. There
are 62 classes of houseplants, cut garden plant material and special
exhibits ranging from prickly cacti to velvety African violets,
unbelievable orchids
and 10 classes of floral designs.

 

“This
year visitors will see amazing miniature floral designs less than 12
cm in any direction, free standing designs up to 2 m tall as well as
hanging designs” boasts acting OHA Flower Show Chair Heinke
Thiessen. “We invite visitors to take time to smell the flowers,
admire outstanding plants and be inspired by the daily demos on
simple floral design and creating your own planter.”
