So glad you could visit our site!

Nice to see Spring arrive, at least, on the calendar.  With snowdrops popping up in some local gardens, it's easy to get a touch of Spring Fever!

watch here for our 2015 public appearances

Perhaps you have already had the Seed Catalogues out already?  Dreaming of how to put together an eye-popping garden for this coming summer? 

Be sure to catch up to us at the Port Perry Garden Show, April 25 thru 26, 2015.  We will be in Booth #66.  We will have lots of mums, dahlias, and great growing advice for you!

our next General meeting - Thursday, Apr 23, 2015 at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, 777 Lawrence Ave E., Flr 2, 7:30pm

Auction Night!  All Gardeners welcome!  If you want to have show-grade Chrysanthemums and Dahlias in your beds this summer, this is going to be the best spot in Toronto this year to acquire the stock of your dreams.  Cultivars are donated by members, and will be sold at bid prices over the minimum of $4.  Come early to get your registered bidder number.  Starts sharp at 7:30pm, on the second floor

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.
