|Cornus kousa ‘Summer Fun’ from Reeves last year|
We’ve had a lot of hits to our blog recently looking for the now sadly closed Reeves Nursery, which we wrote about when it opened on the Danforth in our east-end neighborhood last spring.
Makes me think that we are sorely in need of another independent garden centre in the east end of Toronto, Danforth latitude. While the big box places have good prices, you can’t beat the quality of well-cared-for stock, and the knowledge base you get from shopping at an independent garden centre.
While Reeves is no longer with us, in the east end, try the delightful East of Eliza on Gerrard Street at Woodbine, Green Mountain on Coxwell at upper Gerrard and East End Garden Centre on Queen Street East near Greenwood. There is also Bill’s Garden Centre at Pape and Mortimer.
I’m sure there are some I’ve missed. If you have some good garden spots near you, let us know in the comments.
