Garden Centres open...feels like Christmas in May!
I remember going to a hardware store and garden centre in March to inquire on planter holders and strawberry seedlings! Got some strange looks from floor staff who mentioned how early it was in the season for the stores to stock up on garden supplies. Over-enthusiastic much?! Probably had a nasty case of the "green itchy fingers."
Later in the month, I was so thrilled to visit Plant World, a nearby large garden centre in the West end of Toronto, and see all those plants out on display. My partner and I picked up June bearing strawberries and annual flowers (Calendula, Celosia, Petunia, Geranium) that make great companion plants for fruits and vegetable seedlings.
