The sights, sounds and scents of this year’s gardens will trigger your senses into overload …. These feature gardens reflect the expertise, planning and hard work of many with more than 1500 pots of spring bulbs, over 100 large trees, shrubs and perennials forced in preparation for this annual spring tradition with each garden designed by Saskatchewan’s premier landscape design experts.
Many of the gardens incorporate both plant materials and the latest in hardscape materials including retaining walls and brick patios as well as feature mulch in many colors and textures. Working along-side our designers are the capable and talented Master Gardeners lending a helping hand in the final presentation.
