WHO ARE WE? We are a group of interested gardeners who exchange knowledge and ideas on the subject of horticulture.
The size of your garden or green spaces does not matter. A keen interest in plants and gardens is what we all have in common. Our members come from all parts of Canada, bringing with them tips and hints for our region.
New ideas, and an increased knowledge of different plants and growing techniques can make all the difference in your garden.
Our club was established in 1926, and our first flower show was held on June 8th that year.
Over the years the club has been responsible for enhancing the city by providing various public flowerbeds and nursery plots. We have also sponsored flower shows and competitions.
