“Over the years the Plant Fair has become a fixture of the spring season. It is a wonderful day of mixing, mingling and chatting over plants and Green Elephant bargains. Spirits are high, the refreshments are tasty and when your arms are full just ‘park’ your plants with our plant minders and continue to browse. The Plant Fair also offers an opportunity to purchase Raffle tickets (winners to be drawn May 28) orGarden Tour tickets.

The Plant Fair is the largest of the Hort yearly events. It is also a time when well over a hundred Hort volunteers mobilize like a well oiled machine to bring not only member’s plant divisions into the community, but also their expertise. Plants of every description fill the tables. Standard nursery stock and the basic annuals of the season will also be available. A Connoisseur’s Table will offer items aimed primarily at Hort members or experienced gardeners looking for the out of the ordinary.

There is always a Green Elephant sale, which is a white elephant that is gardening related. Lots of interesting items turn up here. Do you have some to donate? If it could go to a rummage sale or the Salvation Army, it can come to the Plant Fair. Consider garden decorations you’re tired of, edging material you no longer need, pots and vases you have collected, and so on. Please contact plantfair@parkdaletorontohort.com to find out about donating.”
