Spring is finally here

The spring bulbs are finally poking their heads up; that means that I’m ready to get into the garden and I’m sure so are all of you! The citrus trees are looking great, many of them are in flower or holding immature fruit already. The trees available this year are generally bigger then last years’ trees, ranging from 14” to 28”! These citrus are selling out fast, so be sure to buy yours before they’re all gone.

Look for our fruit trees at the Toronto Botanical Gardens Spring Sale this year (located at 777 Lawrence Ave E, by Lawrence Ave E and Leslie st.) and be sure to check out the other amazing plants that Paul Zammit has selected while you’re there. Also on hand with knowledge and advice, is Stefan Weber from the St. Williams Nursery and Ecology Center , the largest source-identified native plant nursery in the province. The Toronto botanical gardens is devoted to bringing horticulturalists the very best plants, advice and garden space. With free parking and all proceeds of the sale going to the TBG, this is one event you shouldn’t miss out on.

The website is finally up!

A big hello to all my fellow tropical fruit enthusiasts. Great news, the website is finally up! You can check out the shop to find some new varieties and even create and share wishlists. You can also expect some great articles on my blog in the near future where I will address a variety of topics; from fertilizers to interplanting, pollinators to soil and container horticulture to aquaponics. I will endeavor to share with you all the tips, tricks I have learned over the years, so you don’t have to learn them the same way I did (ya I learned them the hard way).

Please note that the store is not fully functional yet and that I am still in the process of compiling my free eBook as well as my “Useful Resources” page. Please let me know if you would like your local horticultural society, botanical gardens or educational institution added to the page or if you felt that there was a website, organization or specific information that should be represented there.

I am very much looking forward to sharing my horticultural experiences, techniques and ideas with you all. I hope you find this a good place to learn and share your experiences and most of all that your botanic bounty is abundant.
