Home, sweet National Home Show! After a blog about the upcoming Canada Blooms event, we would be remiss not to share a post (and our excitement) about the National Home Show, taking place on the same days, same times and at the same location as Canada Blooms. And really, a joint event that covers all your indoor and outdoor home needs is as perfect a match as they come!
