Looking Ahead to the 2013 Annual Show

It's time once again for the biggest event on the North Toronto Horticultural Society's calendar. The Annual Show is an excellent opportunity for members to showcase all the beautiful plants they grow in their homes and gardens plus their flair for design. This is also the only event of the year where the public at large gets a chance to see what our club is all about.

Everyone Welcome!

The Annual Show always brings out the best in our designers. Members have been busy brushing up on their skills. On Monday July 15th, NTHS member and floral designer extraordinaire Mary Audia conducted a design workshop for small and mass designs in preparation for the September Annual Show. Five NTHS members attended. Here are a few photos of the top caliber work that was produced. You can expect to see this kind of excellence at the Annual Show (thanks to Mary Audia and Andy McCraw for the photos.)
