Welcome to the Mount Forest Horticultural Society! The gardening season is now well underway, and we have already had some sweltering heat! Unlike last summer, little rain would be welcome!
The hummingbirds are back, and we have seen some yellow and black swallowtails. A good number of Monarchs have also been sighted! Hopefully it will be a good summer for our pollinator friends!
This year's PLANT SALE was a great success! A great big THANK YOU !! to Richard Quartel of Richard's Greenhouses for hosting our sale! Thanks also to all who came out and participated, and to our wonderful customers - you are the best!
Next, mark your calendars for our increasingly famous Town and Country Garden Tour, from 10 AM - 4 PM, July 14, 2018! Tickets are available for purchase at Wild Things Plant Farm and M&M Meat Shop in Mount Forest. The ticket serves as a map to the 7 gardens and will include a description of each garden so that you can customize your tour.
Our meetings will continue through until October (on the third Wednesday of every month). Details of our meetings are posted on the Meetings page of this site. Light snacks and beverages are served at the end of each meeting so that you can get chatting and familiarize yourself with a great community of gardeners! (A lot of us also like the chance to admire the beautiful flower show contestants, or see how they did in the competition!)
