Stoney Creek Garden Club & Horticultural Society
Welcome to the Stoney Creek Garden Club & Horticultural Society's Website!
The Stoney Creek Garden Club & Horticultural Society currently serves members from the Hamilton, Stoney Creek and surrounding areas. The Society is an affiliate of the Ontario Horticultural Association, District Six, a Carolinian District.
Knowledgeable guest speakers are featured at monthly meetings and competitive Flower Shows are held in May, June and September. Its popular Annual Plant Sale is held the Saturday of the Long May weekend at Battlefield Park Pavilion, King St. East (east of Centennial Parkway) in Stoney Creek.
In 2010, the Society renovated the Royal Canadian Legion Hall's two gardens facing Stoney Creek's King Street under the guidance of one of its talented members. See Legion Garden for story and pictures. The garden is still being looked after by Stoney Creek Garden Club members. In addition, members take care of the gardens at Saltfleet Library.
For the past three years, the Society awarded a bursary to a Saltfleet High School student enrolled in its Horticultural program.
In 2016, the Stoney Creek Garden Club will meet on the 2nd Monday of the month, except in October when the Club will meet on the first Monday of the month.
NEXT STONEY CREEK Garden Club Meeting
September 12, 2016
Guest Speaker: Dugald Cameron
"Planting your Spectacular Spring Garden Now".
Dugald’s gardening career began at an early age in his English Grandmother's garden where he'd occasionally help out with weeding and digging. He must have "caught the bug" then, because he’s been interested in plants and gardens ever since. Lynn Pashleigh, Dugald and his Father started Gardenimport, a mail order nursery in 1983 because they couldn't find the quality or selection of plants they wanted for their gardens. The business was closed in December 2014 after 32 years of business.
Dugald was on the board of directors at The Toronto Botanical Garden from 1996 to 2009. He speaks on many subjects to many Horticultural Societies in Southern Ontario, is an occasional sit in for Ed Lawrence on CBC’s Ontario Today, was the first president of the Greater Toronto Bulb Society and is a member of numerous horticultural societies (Toronto Botanical Garden, Ontario Rock Garden and Hardy Plant Society, International Clematis Society, International Bulb Society, Pacific Bulb Society). His current gardening passions are tuberous Begonias and Clematis, Daffodils, Eremurus and Tulips.
This meeting also includes the Fall Flower Show.
