Our Annual Field Trip - Monday July 28th 6:00pm – 7:30pm

The annual field trip will travel to Brian Bergman’s Lilycrest Garden hybridizing field and Elisabeth Hilton’s Squirrel House Gardens.  They will both be in the gardens for conversation.   We will then travel on to the Syndicate in Grimsby after the tours.


The gardens are located on 5th Street in St. Catharines.  Exit the QEW at Seventh Street and turn right onto Seventh.  You will see the stupendous rose fields on the right.  Turn left at 2nd Street Louth, and then at the next right onto 5th Street Louth.  Brian’s field is just a short drive and is on the left at the Houtby farm.  Elisabeth’s is further south, just past 3rd Street. The fee for touring Squirrel House Gardens is $5.00 per person.  Please see Marilyn Cornwell at the entrance when you arrive so she can collect the fee.
