Don’t let the fact that you live in a cramped condo or apartment stop you from creating a fantastic garden- the very act of gardening is said to be soothing, and the results yield both a sense of pride and delicious veggies. Bustan Urban Gardening Essentials, located steps from the University of Toronto, offers a variety of specialty gardening supplies that let downtown dwellers and those with limited indoor or outdoor space experience the benefits of gardening. Not a typical plant store, at least when compared to the behemoth centres run by the likes of Home Depot, Bustan sits amongst the cafes and specialty bookshops that line Harbord. Once inside, patrons are greeted by a series of lush plants, eye-catching cacti and beautiful succulents.
Want to Grow Organically?
With the organic craze jumping from the food aisles to the gardening shed, Bustan offers a host of solutions to budding green thumbs who want to use only the best naturally occurring products in their garden. Holland’s BioBizz uses organic nutrients to ensure voluptuous flowering and enrichment, and Bustan also sells eight different organic fertilizing recipes designed to nourish everything from flowering plants to large vines, vegetables and fruits.
The Great Outdoors
Gardening outdoors? Bustan sells weatherproof Duracraft fiberglass garden planters- the metallic finishes will not fade or peel, but will age gracefully over time. Dyna-Gro Neem Oil helps rid plants of pesky critters and can be used on roses, flowers, trees, shrubs, ornamentals, houseplants and orchids. If it’s privacy you need, Bustan sells a variety of trellises and fences to help make your homey sanctuary feel just a little bit bigger.
Let Your Inner Garden Flourish
If you want to extend your hobby to a year-round activity, or just don’t have the space outside, Bustan has the gear to help your indoor garden flourish. Specializing in the latest horticultural lighting technology, indoor nutrients, supplements, insecticides, containers, and ventilation and odor control equipment, Bustan offers cutting-edge products for indoor-grow devotees.
