Alliston and District Horticultural Society (Garden Club)
ALLISTON AND DISTRICT HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY (Alliston Garden Club)
Welcome to the ADHS web page. The ADHS was established in 1925. Our Garden Club has had a rich history in the Alliston community and with the Simcoe County Master Gardeners. One of our long time members, Ken Phipps, was instrumental in starting up the Simcoe County Master Gardeners. The Floral emblem of the ADHS is the Gloriosa Daisy, a member of the Rudbeckia family. Our Newsletter is called "Spreading the Gloriosa News" and is distributed electronically several times throughout the year. You can also "LIKE" us on Facebook!
