Garden lovers ALERT

garden-tourContributed By Helen Coltrinari
Our Hidden Gardens and Private Spaces tour in Cabbagetown is celebrating its TENTH anniversary on Sunday June 5th. This tour has continued to draw people from all across Metropolitan Toronto and beyond. The attraction for many is not only the unique and charming gardens found here but also the historic streets, charming laneways, and Victorian architecture from modest to grand.
Gardeners often say, “A garden is never finished.”  Ten years later some of the gardens from year one will be back to demonstrate how they have evolved. In addition, there will be many new hidden gardens you would otherwise never see.
Another feature of this year’s tour includes the ever popular and dramatic 6000 square foot private roof garden atop the Hugh Garner Co-op. For those who haven’t seen it, this is not to be missed.  For those who have, you’ll want to show it to your friends. The award-winning project designed by architect, Monica Kuhn, not only provides panoramic views of the city in all directions, but also is a magical oasis with mature plantings, walkways, picnic areas and places for quiet contemplation.
Attending this tour is not only an inspiration for your personal garden space but also a chance to meet up with friends, stop at shops and restaurants offering tour-goers specials, talk to Master Gardeners for pertinent advice, explore the neighbourhood, and celebrate our beautiful historic Cabbagetown.
For more up-to-date information closer to the date, please visit www.cabbagetownpa.ca. By early May tickets will be available at this web site using PayPal or from many merchants in the neighbourhood as well as at selected outlets across the city.
