The workshops at Canada Blooms have been very helpful for this nearly new gardener. The displays and exhibitors are informative and getting an early fix for winter blahs is soooo nice! Please enter my name to be taken away again!

I have 5 gardens and three of them need an overhaul and I don’t know where to start.

I’m hoping to get some ideas from the show and I would love to win tickets for me friend and myself.

I am itching back playing in the dirt again - this will help and give much needed inspiration also - flowers make me smile

I am currently learning to take photography on the wonderful world of flowers, and this would be the perfect opportunity with 6 acres of gardens filled with blooming flowers to choose as subjects!

I was thinking it would be nice to take some of our Pre-Nuptial/ Engagement photos in the paradise garden and show the beauty of Canada's largest and most prestigious flower and garden festival at our wedding which will be held in my home country. =)

My 8 yr. old daughter who loves gardening. It will be an amazing experience if I get to take her to her first Canada Bloom.

Canada Blooms has become an annual "must go to" event for me. It heralds the coming of Spring with its vivid show of plants, gardens, flowers and fresh heady scents of so many blooms.

For parents of young children, it's an ideal venue to show what thinking green is all about, and hopefully instill in a young person, a love and respect for the plant life of this Earth.

I love to be in my garden. I am always looking for new ideas to add a little something each year. It would be quite interesting to see what others have created to give the rest of us insipration.

I'd love to take my Mom to the Canada Blooms Show this year!

We recently moved my 80-year old mum to an apartment and she desperately misses her garden. I'd love to take her to the Show so she can enjoy the plants and flowers. I'd also like to take photos which is my new passion. Please enter me in the draw! - Pam
