Garden Days 2015

Garden Days 2014 - The great container garden
contest where local celebrities like Crystal
Garrett from Global Mornings competed for
the top honours! Here I am with Crystal after she
created her beautiful potted garden.
Canada's annual celebration of all things gardening is happening Friday June 19 to Sunday June 21 at dozens of locations across the country. There are almost one hundred activities taking place, including a bunch here in Halifax at the Public Gardens.

As the Maritime Spokesperson for Garden Days, I'll be giving an informal talk on veggie gardening on Saturday, June 20th at 11 am in the bandstand at the Public Gardens, followed by a 1 pm talk on container gardening by Crystal Godfrey. Crystal will also bring her LUSH container art showcase to the Public Gardens and will have a tent set up with plenty of beautiful containers to view or buy.

Throughout the weekend, there will also be guided garden tours, dahlia giveaways, yoga in the garden, planting with pre-schoolers, an herb walk, a Mi'kmaq drum circle, and Woozles will be offering outside storytime for the kids.
