Workshops in My Garden


Hardy Succulents in Containers.


This growing season, I have teamed up with friend and neighbour Gayla Trail (author and urban food grower) to offer hands on gardening and canning workshops in Toronto. We’ve started off with 3 workshops in the month of May and plan to offer a few more later in the season based on interest, time, etc.

What a great way to get involved in the community.

Hi Paul,

I'm curious to see what response we get.

Dear Barry, I have some sempervivum and sedum and would like to do something like this. What sort of compost mix and feeding would you suggest? Good luck with the wotkshops, I'm sure they'll be a success.

Love the arrangement with the rocks.
Wonder if you could take a closer shots.

Hi James,

I'll try and find a closer shot and put it on the sidebar.

Hi Is,

For compost I use commercial cactus mix and add a product called Turface. Not sure if you have the equivalent in the UK, but it's a fired terra cotta pulverized into gritty consistency. I don't feed at all.
