Spring will feel just around the corner when Carol Onion of Hillside Gardens treats us to what we might expect this growing season. Carol will be presenting in her animated style to the Perth and District Horticultural Society (PDHS) February, meeting many of the beautiful blooms her local nursery expects to offer for 2020.
Carol has been gardening in the Perth area all her life. She and her husband, along with her sister, took over Hillside Gardens from her parents. This dynamic trio has over thirty years of experience growing plants suited to our climate and has already begun working in their greenhouses, focusing on their passion for starting annuals from cuttings and seeds for spring planting. They also grow many of the perennials available at the nursery and research any new shrub offerings to ensure they are suitable for the unique conditions of the Perth growing zones.
Come prepared to learn about new plant offerings for 2020 and ask questions afterward. With her years of experience, Carol will be able to suggest which plants would be appropriate for your garden conditions—whether sun or shade, sand or clay, wet or dry soils.
The PDHS meets every second Tuesday evening of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the basement room at St. Paul’s United Church, 25 Gore St. W. in Perth. Please use the D’Arcy St. entrance. Plan to join us on February 11th at 7:00 p.m., beginning with announcements then a short recess followed by our presenter. Everyone is welcome — membership in the Society is only $15 per year (membership entitles 10% discount on plants from area nurseries), visitors pay $5 for admission. We look forward to seeing you there. PDHS is affiliated with District 2 of the Ontario Horticultural Association.
