The St.Thomas & District Horticultural Society has the distinction of being the oldest, continuous running society in Elgin County. The Ladies Temperance Society held the record until closing a few years back, but since 1870 we have had a horticultural society in St.Thomas and District. Like our banner states "Urbs Bella" we really do have a beautiful city, thanks in part to our active members. Our red rose symbol for our society and the City of St. Thomas is the 'Crimson Glory' an historic Hybrid Tea.
We encourage new members to join us, you can be sure of a warm welcome, no experience necessary just a love of gardening and plants.
We meet the 4th Wednesday of the month Jan to May then September to June at 7:00 at The CASO: Canada Southerns Railway Station, 750 Talbot St. W., St.Thomas, Ontario.
All general meetings are open to the public.
