So glad you could visit our site!
Now that we are within three weeks of the 'Last-Frost-Date', we can have confidence that our unusually cool Spring will soon be history. In fact, once our soil is warm enough, and we get a favourable 14-day forecast, we might be able to plant some of our crops within ten days - as long as we have a cover plan for any greens above ground.
watch here for our 2016 public appearances
our next General meeting - Tuesday, June 07, 2016
Our next meeting will be hosted by Sheridan Nurseries, located at 1774 Ellesmere near McCowan, Tues Jun 07, 2016, 6:30pm to 8:pm (closing time). Please note that this meeting is on a different day, at a different time, and different location from our usual monthly meetings.
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.
