Guest Speaker: Jeff Mason
Topic: Spectacular Indoor Plants
At this time of year, we are beginning the transition from outdoor to indoor gardening. To help us with the process, Jeff will share tips for selection and care of plants that will not only survive, but thrive indoors.
Son of Marjorie Mason, Jeff has grown up in the horticultural industry. As the owner of Mason House Gardens (www.MasonHouseGardens.com) in Uxbridge, Jeff grows and sells a variety of specialty and uncommon annuals, perennials, edibles, tropical plants and shrubs. He also teaches “Fundamentals of Gardening” at George Brown College, lectures at horticultural venues such as Canada Blooms and the Toronto Botanical Garden, and has written articles for publications that include Canadian Gardening and Gardenmaking magazines.
Flower Show: Late Summer
Exhibits include specimens of flowering and edible plants growing at this time of year, potted plants, and special designs. Please refer to our 2019 Yearbook or click here for details.
