It’s time to think about how you will celebrate, how will you engage your clients and potential clients. What will be your special project? How will you engage with the nation-wide Year of the Garden 2022 marketing and promotional campaign? Are you joining Canada’s Year of the Garden 2022 celebrations?

The Garden-Family Resource Guide will provide you with ideas, link to various tools and information to help you plan your participation

Government Recognition

We are in conversation with various ministries expressing our request for the government to acknowledge the Year of the Garden 2022 with an official designation.

Government needs to hear your voice

If you believe that Canada’s Year of the Garden 2022 is a good thing for Canadians, please express your support to your Member of Parliament for an official designation of 2022 as Canada’s Year of the Garden.

Founding Partner

“Proven Winners North America is proud to be a founding partner of Canada’s Year of the Garden 2022. We are especially proud because so much of our North American business takes place in Canada. Our propagator partners, Nordic Nurseries in Abbotsford, BC and Sobkowich Greenhouses in Grimsby, Ontario have serviced the Canadian marketplace with Proven Winners annuals plants for over 25 years. In addition, our Proven Winners ColorChoice flowering shrubs and Proven Winners perennials varieties are also widely distributed in Canada. Consumers in Canada love to garden, and we are fortunate to work with so many great retailers and partners in Canada that are passionate about creating beautiful gardens.”
