Choose from a wide selection of plants and take advantage of free expert gardening advice, too
Plant aficionados know that Paul Zammit, the Toronto Botanical Garden’s Nancy Eaton Director of Horticulture, scours the province in search of the choicest, most interesting plants for the TBG’s much anticipated yearly Plant Sale. “Some of the new and hard-to-find plants we’ll be offering this year include Geranium ‘Azure Rush’, Helleborus × hybridus ‘Sparkling Diamond’ and Agave schidigera ‘Shira ito no Ohi’ (Queen of the White Thread),” said Zammit. “I’m very excited about the quality of these outstanding plants, but supplies are strictly limited.”
