One of the highlights of Spring in the Eastern GTA is the Peterborough Garden Show. It will be timed perfectly to help us all usher in Spring. Joining me for this episode of Down the Garden Path is Cauleen Viscoff Chair of the Peterborough Garden Show. The "Everything's Comin Roses " 2019 show is bringing us a new date and a new venue and partnership at Fleming College in Peterborough.

This is the 19th year of the Peterborough Garden show. It is run by a team of volunteers of the Peterborough Horticultural Society. The  Annual Garden show raises money that goes back to the community by creating scholarships for students studying horticultural related studies as well as grants to community gardens.

The Garden Show each year features over 90 vendors or artisans, most of them local. The support of local businesses is a wonderful feature of this show every year.

The Award Winning show schedule is :

Friday Evening    April 26 – 5pm to 9pm
Saturday                April 27 – 10am to 5pm
Sunday                   April 28 – 10am to 4pm


The price of admission is $10 for the entire weekend. Cauleen gave us an update on some of the speakers and workshops taking place during the show.

Each week on Down the Garden Path we discuss down to earth tips and advice for your plants, gardens and landscapes. As Landscape Designers and gardeners we think it is important and possible to have great gardens that are low maintenance.  Thanks for joining us here. We also want to do everything we can to support our Horticultural Industry, especially local.
