To contact Sonia, please email her at

She is no longer answering gardening questions. Please do not email her with any questions related to plants. However, she welcomes comments regarding her Toronto Star columns.

If you have a question related to your garden, she recommends the Master Garden Info Line at the Toronto Botanical Garden: 416-397-1345.

Run by experienced volunteers, the line is open noon to 3 pm daily in May and June, the busiest gardening season of the year. In April & July, you can contact them between those hours Tuesday through Saturday. August through March: Tues. Wed & Sat. only.

Because the line is often busy, another method is to send them an email. Make your queries brief and to the point. All emails are eventually answered by a Master Gardener, but it may take a few days for your reply to arrive.
