Belle River & District Horticultural Society
Welcome to our website. We want to invite you on a journey through our Society, meet our members and the Board of Directors. You will visit our events, see a Children's Workshop and watch our public projects grow. You will see, learn, and meet many likeminded gardeners.
Come join us!
Our meetings are on the third Tuesday of the month at the St. Simon & Jude Hall
267 Meunier Street, Belle River. Meetings begin at 7:30
Another bus tour is in the books for our society. This one was the fourteenth such trip organized by our Marg Dudley. It led us to Glasshouse Nursery in Chatham, S-W Gardens in Thamesville, Flowerbed Gardens in Blenheim and finally to Williams Nursery in Wheatley. All these businesses gave us ample opportunity to replenish our garden beds or replace plants that were not doing so well anymore. Of course at the midpoint of our trip we stopped for lunch at Dana’s Kitchen in Blenheim for a delicious meal and dessert. As the day was quite warm many bottles of water were consumed on and off the bus. Every aspect of the trip was a success and there were some concerns that the trunks of our cars may not be enough to carry home the bounty. There may also be a concern about the rise in debt many of us are going to experience when the credit card bills arrive. Ah shucks, such is life as a garden enthusiast!
At this time we want to thank all our members and members of neighbouring societies that joined us for our adventure. You make trips like this one worth the work. We want to thank Marg again for planning and organizing the event, Bill for driving us safely all day and all the helpers that made the day memorable.
I am attaching the website addresses for all the nurseries so they are available if anyone would like to see more of what they offer.
