Montreal’s Botanical Garden is bringing back their annual ‘The Great Gardening Weekend‘ next month and they’re offering free admission to the event’s opening night.

The Great Garden celebrates the arrival of spring through flowers, plants, and everything about agriculture.

The weekend hosts over 100 exhibitors as well as agricultural exports who host workshops and lectures about how to properly care for plants and tips on how to build the garden of your dreams.

Whether you’re working with an abundance of backyard space or a balcony, there’s plenty of plants to go around for everyone.

If you’re not in the mood to buy, just waking up and smelling the roses isn’t a bad alternative either.

“Ten thousand years of agriculture have caused the plants we grow to evolve in amazing ways,” reads the event’s website. “By selecting plants suited to their environment, needs and tastes, humans have created an astounding range of varieties and an impressive ‘green’ heritage.”

The Great Gardening weekend invites guests to learn about the diversity of plants that have resulted from the long and patient selection process.
