So glad you could visit our site!

So!  We have been teased with a few days of very Spring-like weather, and now we return to cool rainy weather.  All we can do is wait until the weather warms, the ground heats up a bit, so we can plant.  But we will get there, perhaps in a couple of weeks!  By that time, the 14-day forecast will be our guide as to whether we go or continue to wait!

our 2017 public appearances

Saturday, May 06, 9am to 1pm, we will be at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, Lawrence and Leslie.  Please find us at our sale table there.  We will have a stock of chrysanthemums and dahlias for sale at great prices!

 

our next General meeting - Wednesday June 07, 2017- 7PM.

This will be held at Sheridan Nurseries, 1774 Ellesmere Rd., north side between Bellamy Rd. and McCowan Rd.  Please notice that this is not our usual day of the month.  Our thanks to the Nursery for hosting this, and to Ross Harrison for booking it.

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.
