WELCOME!

 

Thank you for visiting our website!

Summer is with us at last and hopefully you are enjoying your time in the garden. It is a busy season indeed and for many of us I am sure that our gardens remain works in progress – always something more to do or plant and new ideas to be tried next season.

 

History shows that the Town of Richmond Hill has had a long connection with roses and the rose industry. For that reason I am personally happy that this tradition is continuing in two areas connected to our Society.

 

To honour our 100th Anniversary in 2014, the Town of Richmond Hill is installing a new Rose Garden beside the Central Branch of the Richmond Hill Public Library. Through a very generous donation to us by Richview Nurseries, 100 Campfire roses are being planted in this public area. The garden will be enhanced by the addition of an ornamental portal and signage, honouring our Society’s long history in the Town.

 

In addition, a very special rose named Garden Sunshine, developed specifically for our 100th Anniversary, will become available for purchase through the Society in time for planting in 2016. This is a very exciting venture!  For additional information about the development of Garden Sunshine, please search our website further under NEWS. You can even watch a video describing the rose hybridization process and hopefully you will choose to add one of these beautiful roses to your garden. 

  

The Richmond Hill Garden & Horticultural Society continues to offer interesting monthly meetings with vibrant speakers, seasonal flower shows, bus trips, and many varied opportunities for enjoyable and rewarding volunteer activity within the community. 

 Society President Norman McMullen

Please do not hesitate to contact us for additional information about membership, volunteer opportunities or ways in which we can help you enjoy the wonderful world of gardening this year.
