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.)
