Every year President's Choice has a big lawn & garden Product Launch party for the media that specializes in gardening. I've been to three of these events. The first that I attended was held down in the Historic Distillery District. The second one that I attended was a fun Bus Tour. This year they decided to hold it at the Toronto Botanical Garden in the Floral Hall.

Floral Hall, Toronto Botanical Garden

The Hall was set up with a series of booths displaying the product from the various wholesalers. Experts were there to describe the new products and field questions.

We even had a chance to have lunch, which was excellent, with various experts and get more personally acquainted. Jose Gonzalez from Excel Farms of Homestead Florida sat at our table. His company grows tropical plants that can't be grown easily under glass in Ontario. Once they are large enough he ships them up here to finish growing to the pique of perfection at Brookedale Treeland Nurseries.

Car Packed with plants

As you can tell the garden writers at the event were super thrilled with information and product they received to trial.

If you are hosting a garden related event in the GTA and would like it covered in gardentoronto.ca or would like to place an e-poster about it on our Events Calendar, just contact me. I am always delighted to promote anything gardening in Toronto.
