October Meeting: Shade - Problem or Delight?


October is a wonderful time in the garden.  The blazing colours of fall are starting to appear and our gardens will soon be asleep under the fallen foliage.  As the days grow shorter and the evenings grow cooler there are bulbs to be planted, gardens to be put to bed, and plans to be made for next season.  If your plans include starting or sprucing up a shady section of your garden, you won't want to miss this month's meeting. 

Shade is a problem when attempting to grow roses, and a delight when attempting to escape the heat of the sun. Join us as Master Gardener Anna Leggatt opens our eyes to a new world of delightful plants to grow in the shade.

Anna is a very experienced shade gardener with a beautiful shade garden of her own.  She is also a member of North Toronto Horticultural Society.  It is always a treat to hear from one of our own members.

While summer's extravaganza of flowers is slowing down, there's still plenty in bloom.  Be sure to bring in a few selections for our final Flower Show of the year. All the categories are in you 2012 Show Guide.  Until the October meeting, happy gardening!
