Start your gift list: Toronto Gardener’s Journal

Toronto gardeners (or those who know and love them) need to go further for a great little gift or stocking stuffer than The Toronto Gardener’s Journal now updated for 2011.

I first wrote about this information-packed gardening journal back in 2009. Besides the timely tips for each week beside your journal entries, the book is worth its $24.95 cost, if only for its fifty, densely typeset pages of general gardening and Toronto-specific suggestions and contacts, updated annually, and including:

• Great gardening books
• Online resources (including Toronto Gardens!)
• Educational programs
• Local events, shows and tours
• Great Toronto (and Canadian) gardens to visit
• Horticultural and specialty plant societies
• Local services such as arborists and designers
• Plant specialists and nurseries

And, as they say, much, much more.

It’s a valuable gardening tool, and easy to hide in your sock drawer till gift-giving time. Purchase it online through the link at the top of this story.

(Full disclosure: Although we were treated to a complimentary copy this year, you can tell by our past review that purchasing the book in the past didn’t make us like it any less. And we’re not alone.)


  1. Sounds like a great resource and journal for Torontonions (is that right?). I wish there was something similar on the market here in Edmonton.

  2. How fantastic to find a Toronto-specific item like this! 🙂 I'll definately be asking for one even though I'm in Niagara, because I spend so much time advising friends in T.O. on their gardens!
