Petal Pushers


Whether you love them or love them not, it’s a universal thrill to receive fresh flowers for any occasion. The next time you need a floral fix, make arrangements with one of our picks for the city’s top shops.
Is it the proximity to High Park and all its natural splendor that makes the West End one of the best areas of the city for finding floral talent? Sweetpea’s on Roncesvalles offers a floral studio, retail store, garden centre and landscape design at their busy flower shop for all your gifting or gardening needs. Coriander Girl’s storefront is credited with beautifying Parkdale, where Alison Westlake’s earthy and elegant creations will delight.

In the Annex, patrons of Posies Fine Flowers can order garden-inspired creations or enroll in one of their bouquet bootcamps to learn the art of perfect arrangements (a great gift idea, too). For the younger set wanting to get growing, Garden Jane and her team of educators and artists offer kid-focused garden-themed educational programs throughout the spring and summer at various parks and other locales throughout the city. Their May offerings include organic farming and garden ecosystem design. Pre-registration is required.
