So glad you could visit our site!
Nice to have the temperatures cooler, after a hot dry challenging summer. With our shows all behind us, we can simply enjoy our gardens, and share delightful flowers with friends and neighbours! Who knows for how long before frost comes calling, typically an event in mid-October.
watch here for our 2017 public appearances
2016 public events are now all complete. Our next appearance will be the Jump on Spring at the Toronto Botanical Gardens in mid-February.
our next General meeting - Thursday, January 26, 2017
Our next meeting will be at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, January 26, an armchair tour featuring chrysanthemums and dahlias
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.
