Gardenfest July 8 & 9, 2017
Get planting inspiration and fresh ideas at GardenFest’s 10th anniversary celebration!
Our 10th anniversary open house weekend celebrates with free admission to the botanical gardens July 8 & 9 — 9:00am-5:00pm. “We host this open house event every year because we want to celebrate gardens as places of inspiration, learning and well-being. Our botanical gardens and organically grown perennials are a testament that you can have a beautiful garden without pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers,” says Lorraine Roberts, Plant Paradise Country Gardens’ co-owner and author of A Recipe for Continuous Bloom
and Spectacular Plant Combinations for the Perennial Garden.
Roberts shares lots of tips and insights on guided tours of the Plant Paradise Country Gardens’ stunning sun and shade botanical gardens, including:
- New long-blooming plants and spectacular plant combinations
- Ways to garden environmentally sustainably
- The all-natural secret to eliminating weeds
Festival goers who take the guided tours will be wowed by fascinating and unique perennials that thrive in Ontario climates.
“In addition to being the only botanical garden in the region, we are also an organic perennial nursery,” says Roberts. All plants featured on the tour are grown on-site and available at the on-site organic perennial nursery/garden centre.
Plant Paradise Country Gardens is also celebrating their three most recent awards:
- Canadian Destination Garden Centre of the Year
- Canada 150 Garden Experience
- Headwaters Tourism Award for Best Nature & Leisure Visitor Experience
Roberts adds, “What better place is there to learn about planting than the outdoors, surrounded by summer’s stunning perennials in full bloom at GardenFest 2017?”
