Canada Blooms 2017

March 10-19, 2017, Enercare Centre, Toronto

Canada Blooms  
Co-located with the National Home Show, Canada Blooms celebrates 21 years of connecting people to nature during this annual flower and garden show. The theme this year is 'Oh! Canada' to coincide with the country's 150th birthday.

Featuring hundreds of hours of expert speakers, live demonstrations, workshops and tours, the 10-day festival has something for all levels of gardeners and hobbyists. Volunteer for a shift and get access to the show, attend LO's Professionals Night, and check out the four LO features gardens that promote the Highway of Heroes Living Tribute in each of our four seasons — plus showcasing the talents of LO members in the landscape and horticulture professions.

LO members can purchase discounted show tickets for $12 each (regular price $20), in groups of 20 tickets for friends, family, suppliers and colleagues. Members only pay for those tickets redeemed at the show.

Garden Inspiration magazine

Our popular consumer targeted publication, Garden Inspiration will once again be distributed from LO's feature gardens. It has some exciting new features this year as well as new plants, award-winning projects and chapter community projects that perfectly explain the LO culture to those outside the industry.
