Star Trek Garden At Canada Blooms 2018

BizBash Magazine has named Canada Blooms and the National Home Show one of the Top 100 Events in Toronto in 2017, and named #5 for Trade Shows & Conventions. Canada Blooms and the National Home Show together create Canada’s largest home and garden event in North America and our 2018 festival will be held held March 9-18 at the Enercare Centre.

In 2017, the co-located event saw over 174,000 visitors who discovered the joys of horticulture through floral designs, Canada's largest juried flower show and competition, over 100 presentations, special features, as well as 750 exhibitors.

In keeping with the Canada Blooms 2018 theme, "Let's Go To The Movies", Melanie Rekola Landscape Design is making plans to showcase a Star Trek garden.

Landscape designer Melanie Rekola says, "horticulture is a very science based practice and I’ve always had a love for science (and science fiction!) The adaptably of plant life is truly amazing. A Daylily can be uprooted and upside down all winter long and can still manage to poke out some leaves in springtime. A tree native to Japan can be content planted in a garden halfway around the world. The point is life wants to keep living. It’s this life force that I find so captivating. When I heard that Canada Blooms 2018 was movie themed I saw the perfect place to merge sci-fi with horticulture. Will we transplant plant life from other planets to Earth in future? Will our earthly vegetation be transported to other planets? Perhaps…

Horticulture is the final frontier. As gardeners it’s our mission to seek out new life and boldly plant as no one has planted before. Set your phasors to stun. The Star Trek Garden will transport you to an alternate ecosphere filled with out-of-this-world florae and space-age elements. Resistance is futile; you will be assimilated into the future world of gardening!"
