Toronto florists know best when it comes to sending flowers for any occasions from a variety of cultures.
Toronto Ontario is the largest and perhaps the liveliest city in Canada. It is known as a cultural melting pot with close to 50% of its residents having been born outside the country. Although scattered throughout the city, various cultures have carved out communities that are largely populated by their own ethnic group. This gives visitors to the city the opportunity to wet their appetites with faire from all around the world. You can dine in Chinatown, Greektown, Little Italy or Little India to name just a few of the unique neighbourhoods.
Toronto hosts the annual Toronto Film festival and is well known for its commitment to the development of the arts and preservation of culture. The city boasts over 50 dance companies and is home to the National Ballet of Canada. Toronto also has several grand theatres prompting some to call it Canada’s Broadway thanks to their large scale musical productions. The Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario are tourist favourites as are the Ontario Science Centre and the Bata Shoe Museum which houses an impressive collection of shoes from various periods throughout history.
Toronto is also known for its innovation in the field of health sciences and is home to the McLaughlin Centre for Molecular Research and the Medical and Related Sciences Centre. There are at least 20 hospitals in the Toronto area keeping Toronto florists busier than those in most city centers. Toronto flower shops, especially those in the blocks surrounding the hospitals are kept in business largely thanks to the profits they generate filling orders to send flowers to Toronto hospitals. Some Toronto flower shops also supply their arrangements directly to hospital gift shops. Another area that keeps Toronto’s florists busy is the hotel industry. There are several higher end hotels located in the city that keep flowers in their guest rooms and extravagant floral arrangements in their lobbies. They are usually created by Toronto flower designers. Like their counterparts in other cities, Toronto florists also turn a significant profit with the demand for flowers during wedding season. Event planners also turn to Toronto florists to design arrangements for the many benefits and shows held at the Toronto galleries and museums.
Toronto has consistently been rated as one of the world’s most liveable cities. With its diverse ethnic mix, flourishing arts centre and leading edge healthcare, it’s easy to see why Toronto is a top tourist destination and the city of choice for many newcomers to Canada.

Science, or para-science, tells us that geraniums bloom better if they are spoken to.
But a kind word every now and then is really quite enough.
Too much attention, like too much feeding, and weeding and hoeing,
inhibits and embarrasses them.
