So glad you could visit our site!
Most of our members are now well into the digging phase, now that we have reached the end of October. Even if we have escaped the frost so far, the reality is mere days away, and in fact, we hear that snow is in the forecast for places a short distance north of us.
watch here for our 2015 public appearances
With the annual the annual Canadian Chrysanthemum and Dahlia Society Exhibition at the Agincourt Mall now behind us, that completes our public activities for 2014
our next General meeting - Thursday, january 22, 2015 at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, 777 Lawrence Ave E., Flr 2, 7:30pm
Expect to enjoy a lot of pretty pictures, of gardens, and of the year in review. This is the time we push back against whatever Winter is throwing at us, by remembering the beauty of our favourite blooms.
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.
