Canada Blooms 2012
This past Saturday, we ventured to the Direct Energy Centre to check out the National Home and Canada Blooms. For the first time ever, these two shows have joined forces to bring you one amazing show.
This post will focus specifically on Canada Blooms and our post later this week will focus on the National Home Show. If you have never been to Canada Blooms, it is something that you should definitely check out. It is a stunning display of landscape artistry. On top of the stunning displays, there is a marketplace with a vendor that will satisfy everyone’s green thumb.
Below are some pictures of our favourite displays:

Miyabi, a landscape design company located near Queensville designed a very touching display for the Canadian Cancer Society, which included their signature flower, the daffodil. The display also included testimonial posters and videos on why individuals wear the daffodil.
These are a few of the displays that were sprinkled throughout the aisles at the show:
In addition to the beautiful displays, there is an huge marketplace where you could buy anything your green thumb desired. They had vendors with organic seeds, bulbs for lilies, peonies and hostas, tools, plants and vases etc.
One vendor that really stood out to us was Bosman, a company specializing in outdoor furniture. What made us stop, was that they create an entire line of outdoor furniture that is made from recycled plastic milk jugs. They come in fun summer colours, don’t fade, are maintenance fee and can remain outside during the winter months. Below are some pictures of their Adirondack chairs and side table.

Overall, Canada Blooms is an amazing show to attend. There is an endless amount of beautiful displays, live shows and vendors to keep you entertained for an entire day or morning/afternoon. Canada Blooms runs until March 25th, and tickets are available online. For more information on Canada Blooms, check out their website at www.canadablooms.com
