My Favourite Garden Route

Larry Hodgson
Canada's Garden Route Spokesperson Author of "A Garden Lover's Guide to Canada"

Winter? What Winter?

When snow starts to pile up and you can’t step outside without wrapping yourself in three layers of clothing, what’s a Canadian gardener to do? Head south, you say? But that requires a lot of cash and free time. I have a better, cheaper solution: why not visit the nearest public greenhouse?

Welcome to Canada’s Garden Route.

Truth be told, on occasion, we’re asked, “Why is this website called Canada’s Garden Route – when there are no specific ‘routes’ for us to explore?”

We beg to differ, in that, pretty much any route you travel – whether by air, rail, car, bicycle or foot – will, if you’re looking, eventually lead you to a garden experience of one sort or another. A home garden, a public or botanical garden, a garden centre, a community that hangs its hat on its floral and landscaping displays, a garden within a park . . . you get the drift, the list is endless.

No matter which route you choose to take, you’ve come to the right site if you’re looking for THE most comprehensive listing of Canada’s outstanding garden experiences.

As winter takes hold, it’s time to don your boots, mukluks, snowshoes or skis and revel in the magical winterscape splendors of the country’s magnificent public gardens. All you need to do is get outside and enjoy!

You can search for gardens by name, category, province or city. Just click on the link that best suits your purposes.

Canada’s garden experiences look forward to welcoming all visitors, whether you come from across town or from around the world.
