Annual Plant and Garage Sale: May Meeting

Wild Ginger was one of the great selections
available at the 2010 Plant Sale. 

May Meeting
Tuesday May 10, 2011
Annual Plant and Garage Sale
Topic: Fun with Flowers
Speaker: Shirley Binns

Mark May 10th on your calendars.  It's time for North Toronto's Annual Plant and Garage Sale. This event is a great way to share a piece of your garden with members and take home something new and unusual for your own garden.  It's also North Toronto's biggest fundraiser of the year.

Members are invited to divide and share perennials they can spare.  Getting involved is easy.  Bring in your divisions, cuttings and plants to the May meeting before 7:30pm.  Bring plants in individual containers.  Make sure they are labelled with their common and botanical name and include a colour picture if you can. Volunteers are needed to set up the tables, price and sell the plants.  If you have any questions, contact Plant Sale Coordinator Cathy Kuchynski.

Learn to arrange flowers like a pro.  Dorothy
Cartmell's arrangement won Best in Show
at the 2010 NTHS Annual Show.


The plant sale will kick off right after a flower arranging demo by speaker Shirley Binns.  Whether you are a novice or an experienced designer Shirley's presentation is sure to have something for all skill levels.
