the spring workshop schedule is here!

Tired of all the snow and ice?... The spring workshop schedule is ready! 
You can still be chipping the ice from your sidewalk - but this is the time to start planning to make that fabulous succulent wreath to hang on your fence, your door or decorate your balcony.

Maybe you are crazy for lavender - and who isn't? We are running a joint workshop with Weir's Lane that will show you how easy it is to work lavender into your home, or party or wedding.

Please see the Workshop Page of the website for more details.

Look for i fiori at the Hamilton Home Show - March 7-9, 2014. There will be an i fiori demo on succulents for indoor and outside planters held at 5pm on Saturday March 8, 2014 - and a featured centerpiece entered into the Home Show competition.
Oh, I couldn't resist the challenge and, as I love to say... 'Game On...'

We appreciate pre-booking on the signature bouquets so that they will be ready for you to pick-up or have delivered.

We have the popular wicker hearts again - young, fresh, simple and a vase that will say, 'I love you' all year 'round.

A bit about DELIVERY for Valentines Day:
The cut-off for arranging delivery on Valentines Day is end of day on Wednesday February 12th. 
You can still order flowers to be picked-up all week long, but unfortunately we have to make sure that all of the deliveries can be met safely and on time, and we need to plan for that! Thanks for understanding.

And, Friday is the February/Valentine's Day Art Crawl - James Street North will be buzzing! It will be almost as good as springtime. Almost.

farewell to january and hurry-up spring...

I know that I am not alone in saying farewell to January. It was dangerously cold, the wind was harsh and seemed unrelenting, and it forced me to do something that I generally reserve for the end of February...

Yes, the tulips, iris and primulas are in the shop now. If we ever needed a little shot of spring - this is the time!
