We’re Helen Battersby and Sarah Battersby, sisters and long-time collaborators on the award-winning blog Toronto Gardens. We’ve been writing about Toronto gardens and providing inspiration and information to Toronto gardeners since 2006.

When our friend Margaret Bennet-Alder looked for someone to take over the reins of the Toronto Gardener’s Journal & Source Book, we’re glad she thought of us.

While we’re sad (yet happy) to say the 2018 Journal is now sold out (for online sales), some stores still have stock. Check our home page for locations.
