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

Mark your calendars for the annual Canadian Chrysanthemum and Dahlia Society Exhibition at the Agincourt Mall, 3850 Sheppard Ave E, northwest corner of Sheppard and Kennedy Rd in Scarborough on Sep 13, 2014, 7:30pm.  Members will be plucking the best from their gardens, and will be taking their blooms for a remarkable show.

our next General meeting - Thursday, October 23 at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, 777 Lawrence Ave E., Flr 2, 8pm

Come learn how to close your crop for 2014, and properly prepare for overwintering your cultivars for the best start of 2015.

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.
