Your Hub for Blooming, Bountiful and Beautiful Garden Experiences

Garden’s Canada

No matter where you live, in a house, condo or apartment, your outdoor surroundings contribute to your enjoyment of life. From container kitchen gardens on a balcony, a landscaped backyard, colourful flower beds, to a community vegetable garden providing food to the neighbourhood, all need a little effort on your part to nurture their success.

Supported by the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association, The Canadian Garden Council, and its Gardens Canada initiative aims to inspire and inform Canadians about the many health and well-being, economic, and environmental benefits gardens and gardening provide, and along the way provide tips and tricks for gardening success and the enjoyment of gardens.

Step away from the pressures of everyday life to the tranquility of Canada’s public gardens. You’ll discover peaceful oasis, inviting you to stroll amongst the glory of the flowers, down winding paths where the calm coolness of the woodland awaits. Alone, or with your family, you’ll learn secrets of the garden world which will enrich your life. Gardens Canada is the only online resource to explore this country’s national network of public gardens and garden experiences.

Through funding by the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Canada Cultural Investment Fund, Gardens Canada puts you in the know regarding the conservation of native plants and wildlife and recognizes the importance of gardens in a healthy life. Canada’s gardens and garden experiences offer year-round educational opportunities for children and adults. From biodiversity and sustainability to growing your own vegetable garden and recognizing edible plants, there’s so much to learn from public gardens and their staff.

Be the first to hear of special offers and events, then immerse yourself in the beauty, serenity, and uniqueness of garden experiences from coast to coast. Life is better when you explore what’s in bloom!

Gardens feed us. Gardens enrich us. And gardens soothe our souls.

“Over the past few weeks during the Covid-19 crisis, and as spring 2020 breaks across Canada, the Canadian Garden Council has recorded a marked increase in the demand for gardening information and products online from previous years. On social media, posts describing a need to get outside to begin planting a vegetable garden are more frequent than usual. People have been asking provincial authorities for access to garden centres, nurseries and greenhouses. Recent surveys indicate a higher level of interest in public garden visitation than usual, once restrictions are lifted. As this extraordinary period of confinement is showing Canadians, plants, gardens and gardening are essential aspects of how we live our lives and enjoy the outdoors.”
