If you need another reason to check out this year’s BC Home + Garden Show—besides home-improvement tips, HGTV stars and cooking demos—here it is: pizza.
“Something new and cool that we’re doing this year is a pizza pop-up shop on the concourse level,” show manager Amber Beaton said.
“Basically, we’re going to be [bringing] out a bunch of pizza ovens and Canada’s top pizza chef, Giuseppe Cortinovis, will be preparing samples for everybody.”
Last year’s show welcomed just under 30,000 attendees, and this year organizers expect something in the range of 35,000. More than 300 exhibitors have been booked.
“Compared to my first year, I feel like we’ve just found our legs and we’re really getting a grip on some cool features for the show,” said Beaton, now in her second year as manager. “When I first came back, it was right after COVID, so a lot was up in the air. It’s all coming into place now.”
First-time guests include Scott McGillivray, host of HGTV Canada’s Income Property, Renovation Resort, and Scott’s Vacation House Rules, among others.
“We’ve been hearing from our attendees that he is somebody that they’d like to see, and we’ve finally been able to make it happen,” Beaton said.
McGillivray said he’ll talk about investing in real estate “and what specifically people in the area can do to take advantage of the opportunities that are here.”
“Vancouver has been a hotbed of rules and regulations and a lot of pressure on that market,” he said. “We’ve seen crazy amounts of appreciation and we’ve seen a lot of government interference with that market. It’s

It all may have started just a few years ago with a viral video of a vegan BLT sandwich. But in record time, this multitalented creative force has redefined her life while finding her true self (and great success) in the process.
A shady corner, border or garden can be brought to life in spring with the right planting. Silver or variegated leaves work really well to brighten a dark spot, as do white or pale flowers, which almost seem to glow in shade. There is a plant for every shady spring garden and here we share some of our favourites. Included are plants for both dry and moist soils, evergreen perennials to provide interest all year round, as well as deciduous plants that seem to appear from nowhere in spring to brighten the garden with their delicate beauty. Our choices include recommendations from the Gardeners’ World team and familiar faces from across the gardening industry.

I love growing interesting flavors in my garden and bringing them into the kitchen to cook with. That is why I added shiso to my seed list a couple of years ago. I first tried this fragrant herb in a restaurant in Western Canada (where I was also introduced to parsley root). It has a very distinct flavor and is very ornamental. Growing shiso from seed is pretty easy and if you let it go to seed in the fall, well, you won’t need to grow more next year.

When you've finally finished putting away your holiday decor for the year, it's totally normal for your home to seem a bit barren. If you're someone who loves the pops of color and life that the holidays bring to your home, you should consider decorating for all four seasons.
Trees for shade should be planted only after thoughtful selection, for those that may be very suitable in June may be less so in August. The Linden and the Mulberry are delightful trees when they come into leaf, but in July and August the former may make everything near by dirty with dripping honeydew, and in August and September falling Mulberries stain almost everything with which they come in contact.
African violet is perhaps the only full-blown paradox that can survive on a windowsill. On one hand, it is a celebrated show plant, with new cultivars eagerly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. It has its own organization, the African Violet Society of America, and its own magazine, African Violet. A quick Internet search reveals that there are almost as many African violet sites as there are pages for sex and dieting. And yet, these plants are mass-produced by the hundreds of thousands and are readily available for a minuscule price from mom and pop garden centers, enormous mega-merchandisers, and a host of medium-size vendors.
