Next Meeting

Thursday, December 13, 2018

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Location: Ongwanada Resource Centre, 191 Portsmouth Avenue

Speaker:  Nalini Stiemerling

Title:  The Home Gardener and the New Perennial Movement

Tracing the origins and current status of this garden design style, we will outline the thinking behind it. Next, we will examine its relevance to our home gardens, ending with a list of perennials that you might like to try.

There is another new activity for the December meeting. A kind of silent auction/draw for gift baskets and other donated items on the 'Share the Wealth' table. People will be able to purchase tickets and add tickets to baskets in front of any desired item(s). When the "bidding" is over, there will be a draw from the tickets for each item.


Our meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month from September to June at 7:30 p.m. They usually take place at

Ongwanada Resource Centre. The entrance to Ongwanada is on Portsmouth Ave, just south of Johnson St. It is immediately past the Health Unit on the left when going south. Park at the end of the driveway. The building is forward from the end of the drive. [There is more parking to the left.]

There are bus stops on Portsmouth near Ongwanada for evening route E12.

Visitors and prospective members are always welcome. There is no charge for members of the Kingston Horticultural Society or other garden club. For others, entry is $3.00. KHS and garden club members should please show their membership card when coming to meetings.
