City Gardeners Rejoice!

This past weekend in Toronto had us feeling like Spring might’ve gone and sprung! Sunny skies, no snowbanks on the side of the road to slow down your bike game, little bits of green poking out of the ground, exciting times indeed! We decided to give the good weather an extra little nudge by re-decorating our storefront window – giant, magical beanstalks are “growing” alongside all the new Spring goodies we’ve received, including some great gardening kits which are perfect for small container or window sill gardening.
