Thank you for making Garden Days 2018
– Canada’s largest Garden Party –
such a wonderful success!

With 450 outstanding activities registered on the site – from wacky to educational, fun to environmentally sustainable – they certainly provided loads of fun and interest for the garden- and gardening-loving public of all ages.

This year’s activities ran the gamut from garden tours to private backyard events, school and library programs, how-to demonstrations, BIA events, proclamations of ‘Official Garden Days’ in towns and cities across the country, flower and garden festivals, garden centre and community garden events, horticultural society and garden club activities and just about everything in between.

The Canadian Garden Council and the tens of thousands of people who participated in your events and activities congratulate you on your creativity and engagement with Garden Days 2018.

The Garden Council would like to extend an extra special ‘Thank you’ to our supporters and sponsors: Scotts Miracle-Gro, the Alumni Association of the Niagara Parks Commission School of Horticulture Foundation, Bullfrog Power, Canadian Nursery Landscape Association and the Agri-Marketing Growing Forward program. With a special shout out to our outstanding national and provincial Spokespeople and network of Champions without whom Garden Days 2018 would not have been the success it was.

So that you can already begin to think about next year

dates for Garden Days 2019 are  Saturday, June 15 to Sunday, June 23, inclusive.

National Garden Day, to be celebrated on Saturday, June 15, will mark the launch of Garden Days 2019
