I’d love to connect with you! Sign up for my monthly newsletter, "Garden Bliss & Blunder”


This list is from the site: www.omafra.gov.on.ca

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture for Ontario.

They are listed alphabetically and not all are plants that you might want in  your garden.   Some are veggies, some are trees and some you might even consider weeds. 

But the list is comprehensive.

I have indicated ones I have had success with - in green

Remember too, that there is no indication as to the soil, sun or water requirements for any of these plants listed,but you know how to research that.
