* Notes about these prices:
- They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify PSG if you come across values that do not make sense.
- They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.

Prominent Canadian gardens are the subject of five stamps issued on May, 1991. Initiated in 1836 by the Nova Scotia Horticultural Society, whose aim was to promote public interest in botany and horticulture, the Halifax Public Gardens is Canada's oldest surviving public garden. It began with a 5.5 acre portion if the Commons, originally a pasture land provided by the Commons Commissioners. It quickly became a popular attraction but also a financial burden for the Horticultural Society. But an expansion in 1847 saved the day. Encircled by a wrought iron fence, the 20 acres of walkways are all reminiscent of another era. Designer David Wyman and illustrator Gerard Gauci combined their talents to produce the designs.
