So glad you could visit our site!
No frost (high likelihood) in the 14-day forecast, and that brings us to just about the so-called Last Frost Date. Mums can take a light frost, and tubers completely covered will do ok. Just watch if greens are already above the ground - they may need protection. With backup plans in place for frost protection, most of us will be starting our planting, if we haven't already!
watch here for our 2015 public appearances
All our Spring shows are complete for this year. Our next event will be the Fall show at the Agincourt Mall on the 19th of September

Please note that this is a departure from our usual meeting night.
We welcome you to our group
If Chrysanthemums or Dahlias have caught your attention (or if you already grow them), why not consider joining our society? Our membership covers several provinces, even though our main member base is from the area in Ontario which stretches from Hamilton, to Aurora, to Keswick, to Cobourg. We plan about 6 meetings per year, holding most in the Toronto Botanical Gardens site. While not mandatory, we do encourage members who are close enough to the Exhibitions to show their best blooms, and/or participate in those shows. Our first show is held in Markham, Ontario in early September, and our second show is held in Agincourt, a suburb of Toronto. We also participate in the Hamilton Mum Show in the Gage Park Greenhouses in that city, in late October and early November. Membership in our society also brings our newsletter Cuttings, which is full of timely advice on growing and showing, plus other newsworthy items
For speaking engagements in the toronto area
We have people who are able to make quality presentations on chrysanthemums, dahlias, or both. While most members grow one or the other, some have tried both. Naturally, that means we are still learning our craft as well. Most areas we have served thus far are somewhat close to Toronto, so travel costs can be somewhat mitigated. Contact us for speaker fees, availability, and for proposed dates. For e-mail info, click the 'About Us' tab.
