June 15, 2015
The second annual National Garden Days will take place from June 19 to 21, 2015.

A Private Member’s Bill through the House of Commons created a special time to draw attention to our garden culture, history and innovations and to underscore the importance of the horticultural industry, public and private gardens, and the values of home gardening.

Each year, National Garden Day will take place the Friday before Father’s Day. It is managed by the Canadian Garden Council, and is Canada’s annual celebration of gardens and gardening.  

This three-day program of activities and events is for gardening enthusiasts, families, schools and tourists alike. It is an opportunity for Canadians to enjoy their own garden, visit or take part in their favourite garden experience, get inspired at their local garden centre or travel to a nearby destination to enjoy their favourite garden.

Last year, LO members held sales, festivals, barbecues and fundraisers.  This year LO’s director of public relations Denis Flanagan will attend events in London. He is one of the spokespeople for National Garden Days. Make sure you notify Denis at dflanagan@landscapeontario.com on what your company is doing for Garden Days.
