LEGS is located in the heart of South Etobicoke where the breeze from the lake makes for later springs, cooler summers and longer falls. It’s a special area where you are never far from water and a natural area, whether it’s Lake Ontario, Etobicoke Creek, Mimico Creek, or the Humber River.
Our friends in the Kawarthas, NatureCures, are undergoing a large move and need help transplanting their beds this June!

I have a tuberose that was purchased as a bulb this spring. It never bloomed (though it almost did in my kitchen recently). Would it be best to let it go dormant (or take it out of the soil) and let it try again this spring? How do I best accomplish this ?
The Big Guy is offering coffee grounds to local Gardeners. He will leave them in a plastic bag outside the coffee shop at 2861 Lakeshore Blvd, between 5th & 4th streets, on the south side.
First come, first served, just pick them up & be on your way – or stop in & get one of his free trade, organic coffees.
Coffee grounds can be used as mulch, particularly good for fruit trees, they add nitrogen to the soil, act as a slug deterrent or can be added to your compost.
Don’t worry about adding acidity to your soil, most is lost in the brewing process, so it won’t affect the pH.
