Sawaya Gardens holds annual industry open houses every year. Hoping you can join us, but if you are unable here is a little look of what you could see if you came to visit us in Waterford, Ontario Canada.





In 2021 more than 300 horticultural producers, breeders, buyers, wholesalers and marketers from across North America attended. They are looking for leading-edge plants to watch and leading-edge plants to avoid.


Owner Mel Sawaya, a horticulturalist by training, estimates he has 3,750 different varieties on the premises. 


Sawaya’s stock-in-trade involves growing new cultivars and preparing objective reports on their performance.


The industry wants to hear the verdict good or bad because it wants to know what to avoid and what to promote.

100% of all the plants being represented in these trials are donated to the Norfolk General Hospital in Simcoe, Ontario.
