The companies you see on our home page and our ICanShop page are sponsors of our site ... we are proud that they see value in being a part of our site and are in it for the long haul like we are. They continue to bring you excellent products and behind every company are great people that we know and trust. You can buy with confidence .. I have used a good number of products from each of these companies and have heard from many other gardeners who have also raved about their products. Each month I will be showcasing at least one of the items they carry to help you get to know them a bit better. We would love to hear your feedback on either the product or the company.


'Simply the best pruners in the world'. I have used many different brands over the years, but continue to come back ... especially since they have come out with the rotating handle pruner. My fingers never get tired nor do I have any blisters.

Stoke Seeds

Stokes offers the highest quality seeds and accessories for both home gardeners and commercial growers. Choose from their extensive listing of vegetables, annuals, perennials, pot plants and herbs. Get on their mailing list as well for their 2004 catalogue - coming to you in November!


Now, I know you have been getting MYKE Bulb Growth Supplement when you have been buying your bulbs to plant this fall, but don't forget to also pick up the Indoor Plant Growth Supplement. This is the perfect time to transplant those houseplants that have been outside all summer. I used this on my indoor basil plants and could not believe the growth.

Premier Pro-Mix

all of their products are great and at this time of year, you can use the PRO-MIX Ultimate Potting Mix or PRO-MIX Ultimate Organic Mix when you are transplanting your houseplants.

Gaia Green

you have heard me talk about Tom using the Glacial Rock Dust in his compost ... he thinks it is a great product, but what is it and how is it used...

Doktor Doom

Their site has recently been updated so take the time to go through it to update yourself for next year. They have a brand new Odorless Foam Mosquito Repellent plus the latest information on fairy ring.

You will also see under this area a huge selection of garden books. Be sure to check out my picks - these are books I am really impressed with. Please get your books through your local book seller and support your local supplier. You are more than welcome to send us in your book review of a particular book that we have listed and we will get it up for you.

Of course, don't forget all those great magazines - why not get a gift subscription for you and a friend this year. You have a great choice right across Canada, from the East Coast Gardener to Gardens West, we have them all.

That's a start, now visit these great people and support them!
