Garden State: Great Garden Tips

About Sandra Pella

Sandra Pella, Horticulturist and Gardening Expert 


Sandra Pella is one of Toronto’s preeminent gardening experts and has designed beautiful natural spaces for homes across the city. Her philosophy is grounded in a deep respect for nature and working with natural systems to create habitat for biodiversity, such as pollinators. Since 2008, Sandra has been the Head Gardener at the Toronto Botanical Garden. She holds a degree in Political Science from the University of Western Ontario, and upon graduation worked in the financial sector until the pull of plants was too much to resist. Sandra worked as a Gardener for two seasons with the City of Toronto as well as seasonal Gardener for the TBG prior to being named Head Gardener. She is self-taught in the field and thus greatly appreciated the experience of a gardening internship in 2009 at Great Dixter in the UK. Sandra was the horticultural representative for the National Home Show in 2014 and 2015. She has given presentations on gardening with nature to many audiences and is a regular commentator in the media on promoting nature in our neighborhoods.
