Build a garden at Canada Blooms 2015
Ever thought about taking on the challenge of building a garden at Canada Blooms? A call has gone out for garden builders at Canada’s largest flower and garden festival.
Tony DiGiovanni, Executive Director Landscape Ontario, has sent an open invitation to members to showcase their talent, creativity, craftsmanship and professionalism by creating a spectacular feature garden at the 18th annual Canada Blooms Flower and Garden Festival.

Canada Blooms takes place from Mar. 13 through to March 22, 2015 at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto.

Canada Blooms showcases the best garden designers and builders in the nation and this will be your opportunity to create a space that will inspire, express and captivate the attention of over 200,000 garden enthusiasts and media. We are proud of our tradition of excellence as we present the best of Ontario’s landscape and horticultural industry in the feature garden area of Canada Blooms.

“If you have ever considered promoting your business by building a garden feature at Canada’s premier garden festival, now is the time to let us know.

Come join us and celebrate our 2015 theme ‘Let’s Play,’ ” says DiGiovanni.

“We are currently accepting confirmation of intent to build a feature garden at Canada Blooms from recognized and respected landscape architects, designers and design/build firms.

DiGiovanni cautioned there is limited space available. By indicating your interest in early July, it will place your name on a short list to submit a proposal, which will take place between Aug. 1 and Sept. 15. “This will also help both garden builders and Canada Blooms connect with potential sponsors who can partner together to create an amazing experience for all,” says DiGiovanni.
