SUNDAY March 17

0730 Canada Blooms attracts gardeners and non-gardeners alike in huge numbers. Fresh Air's favourite gardener, Marjorie Harris, joined guest host Karen Gordon to explore the appeal of this huge horticultural and floral extravaganza.

Marjorie's latest book about gardening is "Thrifty Gardening: From The Ground Up".
It's published by House of Anansi.
Marjorie's website is a great source of information for gardeners of all abilities.
And Canada Blooms is a great destination for gardeners---it runs through Sunday, March 24 at Exhibition Place in Toronto.

0800 There's something new at the Art Gallery of Ontario. It's an exhibition called: "Revealing the Early Renaissance: Stories and Secrets in Florentine Art". And curating it is a labour of love for Sasha Suda, assistant curator of European art at the AGO, Karen Gordon went to the AGO to see the exhibition and talk to Sasha.

The AGO website is your destination for information about the exhibition.

0830 Justin Rutledge brings a very literary background to his music.
What else would you expect from someone who majored in English literature in university? He's also someone who dabbles in the theatre---witness his collaboration with author Michael Ondaatje on the stage version of Michael's novel "Divisadero". And now Justin has released his latest album---it's called "Valleyheart". Justin and Karen sat down in the studio to talk about it.
