May Meeting: "From Garden to Vase" & The Annual NTHS Plant and Garage Sale

Our May meeting promises to be one of our busiest meetings ever and one that requires member participation more than ever.

Add some exciting new colours to your garden
at the May Meeting

First up, a May meeting bonus. NTHS Program Director Shari-Lyn Safir will hold a brief information session on planting with the moon. What is it and how can it work for you? Is it simply folklore or is there really something to it? Shari-Lyn fills us in. Perhaps you'll be inspired to try planting by the moon.

Next is guest speaker Nicole North. Nicole is an award-winning floral and garden designer. She has almost 20 years of experience in both industries and loves being able to share her knowledge with other people.  She speaks to many garden societies, makes guest tv appearances and teaches at the Toronto Botanical Garden.

At the May meeting, Nicole will show us how to bring the beauty of the garden indoors. Learn how to use your own vases and flowers cut right from your garden to create simple yet stunning flower arrangements. Bring your own vase and a sample of your garden flowers and learn the tricks and tips of the trade.

And finally, we will be holding one of our club's most anticipated events: the Annual Plant and Garage Sale. Members are invited to drop off divisions of perennials and houseplants and garage sale treasures starting at 6pm. Members of the plant and garage sale teams will help you with the placement and pricing. The garage sale starts right away. The plant sale begins after our presentations for the evening.  Act fast! The best selections are always snapped up quickly.  

A note about garage sale donations: we are happy to accept all items in reasonable condition. If an item you donate does not sell, please take it home with you.  North Toronto does not have the space to store items or the resources to redirect items to other organizations that accept donations.

  1. It was a great pleasure to hear Nicole North at the NTHort. May14th meeting. Nicole not only showed us her original creative designs using our own garden flowers,(and hers) but taught us specific botanical aspects of these blooms, with delightful charm and humour! Huge Thanks! Iris Hazen
