MONTREAL, April 23, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - To the delight of all lovers of gardening and horticulture, the Space for Life presents the 16th edition of the Great Gardening Weekend, held at the Montréal Botanical Garden from May 24 to 26, 2013. Come stock up on ideas to create your perfect garden, drawing on the expert advice of young landscaping professionals and the Botanical Garden's own horticulturists.

The Great Gardening Weekend: A beautifully arranged program
Imagine having the opportunity to meet over a hundred gardening and landscaping specialists in the same day; speak to experts with specialist knowledge of roses, bonsais and daylilies; buy magnificent annuals and perennials while talking to their producers; discover useful and original garden accessories—and don't leave without at least one of the 12,000 plants produced by the Botanical Garden's horticulturists.
The Great Gardening Weekend also features talks and demonstrations by well-known personalities in the gardening world. And new this year, the Friends of the Montréal Botanical Garden booth will offer tips for growing and pruning vines in Québec.
The event will furthermore explore various themes, such as the beauty of creating gardens that attract birds or butterflies, the joy of cooking with seasonal vegetables and the art of gathering edible mushrooms—fascinating topics sure to have you reaching for your gardening tools!
And to top it all off…
The Great Gardening Weekend will culminate in the announcement of the Winners of Horticultural Merit and the recipient of the Henry Teuscher Award!
