Michel's Garden 2011
I go to Montreal several times a year, usually to attend Rendezvous Horticole, the Spring plant sale at the Jardin Botanigue de Montreal held on the last full weekend in May.
Arriving on the Monday, I missed the sale by one day but enjoyed my stay as it involved a number of events including an evening at the theatre, a tour of the theatre district which is undergoing a major rebuilding, a day trip to the great nursery 'Les Jardin Osiris' and finally seeing Michel's garden at its best in early summer.
