Coming to a Store Near You!

Hot off the presses, the 2nd issue of Gardens East will be in stores over the next few days! The cover shot is of a local Halifax garden that I had the privilege to visit late last fall - and what a garden! The owners are extremely creative - both indoors and out - and have managed to create a peaceful retreat in the middle of the city.

Located a stone’s throw from Dalhousie University, this garden is a true testament to what can be done in a small space. The property is long and narrow, measuring approximately 33 x 100-feet with the house occupying a large portion of the space. Yet, tucked away in the backyard is an urban oasis filled with a carefully chosen collection of small trees, hardy shrubs and colourful perennials.

I hope you enjoy the article, as much as I enjoyed visiting the garden!

By the way, Happy Spring!
