So glad you could visit our site!
We all know that Spring Planting weather will soon be here, but ,,,not just yet. The 'Last Frost' date is only 3 weeks away, and that is good news.
watch here for our 2014 public appearances
The next public appearance will be the plant and tuber sale, held annually at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, on Saturday, May 10, from 9am to 1pm. This is an excellent opportunity to get quality plants and tubers - chrysanthemums and dahlias. The plan has us directly outside the main entrance to the TBG main building, and if weather isn't agreeable, we will be inside.
our next General meeting - Tuesday, june 10, 2014 - Held at Sheridan Nurseries, 1774 Ellesmere Rd, Scarborough, 7:00pm
Thanks to all of you who came to our General Member Plant & Tuber Auction. It is one of our main events to provide funding for the Society, and to allow us to continue having meetings at the TBG. I hope you all had fun, and I can confirm it was a great success as well,
For our next meeting, please note that compared to our usual general meetings, this is a different location, day of the week, and time. Come prepared for a great meeting, followed by the opportunity for an extra special discount for members on plant purchased that night! Again, it is at Sheridan Nurseries, June 10, 7pm!
Of special note, we wish a very happy birthday to both Jude Fox and to Ann Polera, who have celebrated recent birthdays! Many happy returns to both!
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.
