So glad you could visit our site!
We knew that the snow was coming, and it has now arrived! This is one of those 'mixed emotions' times, where we feel sad to see the end of the outside gardening season, yet glad to know that the physical work of maintaining the garden is over for another five months or so. Of course, this is the season of perusing all those catalogues and websites, to sort out how our garden will be filled in 2014
Thanks to all of you who shared your time with us on Dec 07, as we honoured those who exhibited their blooms in the Agincourt Show. Thank you too, for voting your preference for the 2014 executive!

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.
