Anyone have any news on the status of the Leslie Grove Community Garden?

Last bit of info was that city gave approval & then a notice about free compost; since then nothing. 

I'm sure people would like to start planting  soon & there was lots of interest at first meeting 1 year ago..

Here is facebook page

There doesn't seem to be much activity for such a busy gardening season. Has everyone divided (and shared)their perennials; bought and planted their spring bulbs, etc. If anyone has divided plants now is the time to share with friends and neighbours. Pruning season is also upon us but I always like to wait until all the leaves have fallen. Happy Fall!

Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone has advice about when to prune hydrangeas in Toronto? I have just moved to Toronto from Australia where the seasons are very different. Also wondering if anyone could recommend a place to buy fresh herbs (to grow) in the Leslieville or Beaches area? Thanks for your help :)

Hi all. I just got permission from my landlord to repurpose my weed-ridden front yard for gardening. My street is tree-lined and shaded, so I guess that limits what can be grown. Ideally I'd like something edible and racoon-proof. Any advice for a newbie as to what I can start with at this time of the year?

Hi there. I just got an email from Claudine. The meet and greet for Sunday at Leslie Grove park for people who want a community garden has a rain date: If it is still raining at 12 noon, we will rain check the Meet and Greet for SUNDAY APRIL 8TH @ 1PM.

As of this morning, it's on Diesel, too (Android eBook site).

Wow, that's so cool, Pat! Must check it out!

If you are curious about what George Leslie was selling out of his Nurseries here in Leslieville in the 1850's and 60's, I've just published an ebook, and have compiled a list of over 1000 trees, shrubs and plants from two of his catalogues. I've been able to source some of the plants in modern nurseries, too, so you could plant things in your Victorian garden that would have been sold in Victorian times. Apple trees through to roses, phlox, and dahlias! My book is now available on the Chapters-Indigo eBook site.

Leslieville Local Business Marketing - 10 ways to use

Posted by Nolin (Admin) on February 3, 2011 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

When I launched this site in early 2009, one of the compelling reasons for doing so was that I was struck by how many of the businesses in Leslieville are locally owned and operated.  Another big observation was (and still is) how proud most…
