Our Next Amazing Speaker

Our speakers this year have been duly impressed with the reception they have received from you,our members.This certainly reflects on our horticultural Society and how much you value the learning provided by our speakers. They enjoy you and enjoy returning to share their knowledge.

This June 19th we have another local speaker, Craig Mcleod, whose wife Linda has spoken to us before. She enjoyed her time with us and no doubt spread the good word to Craig.The McLeods maintain Cedar Lane Gardens near Fenelon Falls along Highway 121.

Craig will share his expertise on our provincial flower, the Trillium.He claims not to be an expert on trilliums, but somehow has the knowledge and expertise to successfully grow 11 varieties of the 40 species native to North America. He humbly claims that much of his knowledge has been derived from a book on trilliums written by Fred and Roberta Case of Michigan, USA. Fred and Roberta have successfully grown every known North American species and are the leading authorities on this woodland species.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday,June 19 at the Knox Presbyterian Church Hall (the corner of Queen and Joseph Streets). The meeting will begin at 6:30pm and Craig will entertain us starting at 7pm. We look forward to seeing you all again. In the meantime, happy gardening and please let it rain!
