Questions? Or just, Hello. Drop us a line!

Helen (left) & Sarah

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.

We’re sad (and, to be honest, a little happy) to tell you that all of our Journals for 2019 are now off helping gardeners record their growth.

If you’d like us to add you to our mailing list for 2020, please drop us a line at

And thank you for your interest in the Toronto Gardener’s Journal 2019.
