I REALLY wanted to go, but I just don't have the cash. $15 to get gas and parking, and I don't even have the money to buy anything.

Last year I went and spent $100 on tropical flowers...And I still have all 8 of them. I really wanted to buy an Orchid this year because they had 100's and 100's of them, so a great selection.

Stupid new job..I wish you started by now so I could go!!

My wife asked me to go last night, then when I laughed, she pointed out that she offered to go to the bike show with me. So, I'm afraid I might be. :sad:

No...not really. I always like going because there is a seller there that sells the plant I collect. I always end up buying more than I have room for though. And this summer I am in a new apartment with no balcony (there is a covered one but it's not very good for plants, as it gets TOO hot).

I am a big gardener. I love plants. I did a part time job one summer in landscaping and loved it.

Last year I took a ton of pictures at Canada Blooms! Last year I got free tickets through work, as my company was a sponsor.

I was wanting to go more because it would be a "pick me up" as the weather is so dreary right now...

I wish I could get you tickets :( to cheer you up but my freind sneeks me in somewhat with a pass.
I am a huge gardner also, back home in the UK when I got my first house my Grandmother who has been a huge gardener her whole life came and taught me everything she knows and ive been hooked ever since.
We have a small balcony and im looking forward to working on that this summer and making it look nice. Got any tips on what are good plants for a smallish pot? I dont want something overtaking my balcony

No. Canada Blooms Show just reminds me how bad I am at gardening, and everything I touch dies within days. It's such a bummer.
