Start a home garden with seeds delivered from these Canadian sites | Etcetera - Daily Hive
This is the best place for anyone starting from scratch.
Another great starting point is Halifax Seeds. They have a specific section for indoor gardening on their website and a multitude of articles on how to grow specific plants, flowers, and vegetables.
If you’ve already got a pretty good setup going but haven’t been able to get out to the garden stores, both the Natural Seed Bank and Ontario Seed Company have a wide catalogue of herb, fruit, vegetable, and flower seeds for purchase. Natural Seed Bank is, understandably, a little backed up at the time of this article, so be sure to check the website to see when their orders open back up.
For those of us who have a long list of dead plants to our name (RIP to all the overwatered cacti), Plant Collective, out of Toronto, Ontario, and West Coast Gardens, out of Surrey, BC, have pre-grown houseplants, air plants, and succulents to choose from.
All of these can be delivered to your door, along with the necessary accessories to set up the plant den you’ve been planning. Be sure to check their websites for tips on how to keep your green babies alive and thriving, even in the brittle Canadian winter.
With coronavirus on the rise, Health Canada is reminding individuals who attend events and large gatherings to monitor their health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. And if you’re not feeling well, they recommend staying home at this time. Also, due to unexpected cancellations, please check the event you plan to attend is still taking place. Keep up with COVID-19 news here.

Midweek Mugging: The Flower Shop
Charlotte Pierce, owner of The Flower Shop, is this week's Midweek Mugging recipient.
The Flower Shop is located at 1705 Barrington St. in downtown Halifax. Pierce and her team provide floral arrangements for corporate events and weddings, while also catering to those who come in to find plants for their homes.
"We do a lot of loose, luscious greenery arrangements, which is just a little more organic than a Superstore bouquet," Pierce said.
Pierce, who is from Halifax and previously worked with the government in small business, took over the shop six years ago when the previous owner retired. She is the fourth owner.
Pierce said she was interested in plants before she bought the store but, "not to the point where I had to own a flower shop," she laughed. "I just had this life-changing thought, you know-this is the career path I want to go down."
"In a way I just kind of bit the bullet, and I'm like, this is what I'm doing, and this is what I'm creating, and now I'm reaping that benefit of being able to be in [the business]," she said.
Pierce said there's about 25 different varieties of plants available in the store, such as s... Apr 20, 2018

A variety of succulents and air orchids grown in her yard were among the prize winners last week at the The Garden Club of the Halifax Country Flower Show, a Garden Club of America Show, at Oceanside Country Club in Ormond Beach.Mary Jo Harrington was chairman for the show, which took months of work, club members said.Among the other showstoppers were the seasonal blooms, such as huge amaryllis flowers.But the entries weren't just limited to potted plants. Club members and others competed in a photo contest and floral design, including standalone designs and table settings. A teapot brimmed over with roses in the "Tea and White Gloves" display. A striking arrangement of red anthuriums and bright orange flowers sat in a large metal ring. A series of air plants attached to a large bamboo, more of Moore's handiwork, also attracted attention.A pachypodium Moore raised from seeds received a Christine Beattie Medal from judges "for vibrancy, prime condition and perfection of grooming."...

Despite brisk Maritime weather, spectacular desert plant set to boom in Halifax
By The Canadian Press on April 19, 2018.HALIFAX – The typically frigid weather that grips the Maritimes at this time of year may be hindering the growth of some plants – but in a dreary corner of a Halifax park, a large plant that is more suited to the hot desert is about to put on the show of its life.The agave americana, a plant native to Mexico and the southwestern United States, is blooming for the first time since it sprouted 25 years ago inside a greenhouse at Halifax’s Public Gardens.With the arrival of spring, the large plant has been moved outside, where its asparagus-like stalk is expected to grow nine metres over a few weeks, then branch out with clusters of blooming flowers – and then die.The agave is turning heads in the downtown core.Earlier this week, some onlookers stopped to include the plant in selfies.“It’s exciting,” Taylor MacGillivray said, standing at the tropical display bed. “Even going to Mexico you’d be lucky to see it.”Photos of the agave on the Halifax Public Gardens’ Facebook page have gar...

Big winner in Halifax Country Flower Show plants gardening passions in others
I take shots and get to come out in public.”At age 67, Moore walked away from the Halifax Country Flower Show with three horticulture awards and at least 20 ribbons, showing her success as a master gardener.Moore said she showcased about 55 plants at this show. An outdoor garden of 500-600 plants with a brick courtyard protecting them fills the yard outside her home.“It’s like a hoarding disease,” she said. “My son just calls it my plant mess. They call me the hoarder of plants.”At the flower show on Wednesday, March 21, at the Oceanside Country Club, Moore earned the Catherine Beattie Medal, which values a plant’s vibrancy, prime condition and perfection of grooming; the Clarissa Willemsen Horticulture Propagation Award, showcasing a plant in prime condition with flawless grooming that’s difficult to grow; and the Rosie Jones Horticulture Award, featuring a plant of exceptional visual appeal that reflects the spirit of growing with joy and enthusiasm.“It’s the competition; it’s not really about winning,” Moore said. “And also, being able to educate people about how much fun plants can be. You can go out and see a flower and say, ‘Ah, this is gorgeous,’ then you feel good because this flower looks so beautiful.”Moore said she likes “weird” plants — ones you wouldn’t normally see, like Pachypodium, native of Madagascar, for which she earned the Catherine Beattie Medal.On a different table, a blue ribbon winner of Moore’s features a variety of succulents planted intricately into a piece of wood, which Moore said is a base she challenges her...
