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.

A Geranium, by any other name ... Is a Pelargonium
by Barbara Puchala

For centuries, we’ve been calling them geraniums, ever since 1753 when the Swedish botanist, Carl Linnaeus started botanical nomenclature by classifying plants. He described 20 pelargoniums in his publication.  It was assumed that these plants were all geraniums and so they were placed under the genus geranium.
