the holiday season

Christmas really is around the corner!
After such a mild and beautiful November we were lulled into a really relaxed approach to Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years.
Well, THAT'S over.
I hear that the malls are crowded and frantic and filled with anxious shoppers. Truthfully? I only go from hear-say, because my shopping is done on James Street North, where the atmosphere is a lot more relaxed, the coffee shops are friendly, and well, things are a little less mass-produced.


I love this neighborhood.
I love this city.
And I love this magical season!

5th anniversary

i fiori is 5!

This November we celebrate 5 years in business, and I have only my wonderful customers, supportive friends, family and fellow business owners to thank.

So how do we thank you...?

This November Art Crawl from 7pm to 10pm, and Saturday November 12 from noon to 5pm please stop by for treats and 'thank you' deals:


  • For every $20 gift certificate that you buy - we'll make it $25
  • For every 4 plants that you buy - we'll give you 5.
  • All vases, pots, planters and containers are 1/5th off (save 20%)
Friday evening and Saturday only - and while supplies last!

i fiori fall workshops & Supercrawl 2016 - oh boy!

September is here, Supercrawl week is here, the hot weather is still here, and the i fiori fall workshop line-up is here!

2 out of 4 is not so bad...

Check the 'workshop and events' page for the dates and times for the fall workshops, and just a note - these book up very quickly and space is limited - so don't dawdle.

We look forward to seeing everyone at one of the best events in Hamilton this Friday, Saturday and Sunday - Supercrawl on James Street North!




Once again, i fiori will be raising money for Notre Dame House by selling beautiful roses in front of the shop. All net proceeds go directly to the 'Dame' (no sneaky levels of bureaucracy here...)

Buy someone a flower and do a good thing!

5 reasons to start your garden seeds now...


And the 5 reasons are:

5) Matchbox seeds are available at i fiori for only a short period every spring
4) All Matchbox vegetable, herb and edible flower seeds are sourced from certified organic growers
3) All Matchbox seeds are harvested at a locally owned and operated vegetable and herb farm - which means that all of these varieties will grow in our climate and thrive in your garden.
2) Starting seeds indoors gives you a real jump on the 'days to maturity', and lets you enjoy your harvest sooner.
And the number 1 reason to start your seeds...
1) Look outside.






We have everything you need to jumpstart your garden this year:

- little tabletop greenhouses
- planting medium
- organic fertilizer
- biodegradable planting pots
- bloodmeal and bonemeal
- Stim-root #1 & #2
- and, of course, Matchbox Seeds(!)
