Our garden show is our annual, major fund-raiser but the best part is, we do it…

Because we love gardening

The first garden show with 70 display booths was in 2001 and presented as a one-time event to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the  Peterborough Hort. Society. The response was so enthusiastic that two years later, along with the Peterborough Master Gardeners, we did it again.

2017 marks our 17th show with well-known speakers

and 2 and a half incredible days.

We host over 100 VENDORS and exhibitors who are landscapers, gardeners, growers, teachers and designers along with many not-for-profit organizations; we have garden displays and demonstrations and SPEAKERS; an ambitious interactive CHILDREN'S GARDEN; the latest in garden tools, and so much more...... 


We'd like:

  • to inspire you and celebrate the coming of Spring 
  • to incite (or renew) your passion in gardening
