At the Ontario Horticultural Association Plant & Flower Competition more than 300 private gardeners display their creative vision and green thumbs with entrees representing innovative themes set out by the association a year in advance. The spectacular and imaginative sights and smells results truly represent the wonder of Mother Nature.

Kids get a leg up on gardening with tree climbing demos from the Urban Forest Council, and interactive sessions on conservation, worm composting and everyone’s favourite - bugs, hosted by the Mississauga Gardening Council.
