So glad you could visit our site!

Thank you for visiting our site. We are a small group of folks who have an interest in growing, and in some cases, showing dahlias and chrysanthemums.  For over 50 years, our members have been sharing stock and information on how best to grow these blooms with whoever has an interest.

Are you sorting through the gardening catalogues yet?  This is a good time for reflecting on how you want your garden to look this Summer.  A whole new year in the garden is facing us, as we navigate the departing grip of winter. Where would we be without pleasant anticipation of warmer weather?

our next General meeting is our yearly auction..- Thursday, April 26, 2018- 7:00PM.Toronto Botanical gardens, 777 lawrence ave e., studio 2 (upstairs)

This is our yearly Auction night, where you can acquire excellent quality stock of exhibition dahlias and chrysanthemums.  Since this is donated stock, we are unable to give a list of what will be auctioned, but we will have images of what is going under the gavel.  This meeting is open to public and members alike....bring your friends, and take home some good deals!

 

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 encourage you to visit 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.
