Do you love gardening? Are you concerned about Mississauga’s environment?
Whether you are a new gardener looking for support or an experienced one who is willing to share what you know, there is a place for you in Streetsville Horticultural Society. Even gardeners who have moved from homes into apartments and no longer actively garden are most welcome as volunteers.
Our main purpose is to beautify Mississauga through the planting of trees shrubs and flowers. We do this in a variety of ways either by planting them ourselves or assisting others or encouraging others to do it. Our Horticultural Society volunteers are busy each year with local community beautification projects such as the gardens at Leslie Log House, Rotary Park and Leisure World Long-Term Care Home in Streetsville.

October’s Topic: Planting a spectacular Spring Garden by Dugald Cameron. My gardening career began at an early age in my English Grandmother’s garden where I’d occasionally help out with weeding and digging. I must have “caught the bug” then, because I’ve been interested in plants and gardens ever since. Lynn Pashleigh, my Father and I started Gardenimport, a mail order nursery in 1983 because we couldn’t find the quality or selection of plants we wanted for our gardens. The business was closed in December 2014 after 32 years of business. Dugald was on the board of directors at The Toronto Botanical Garden from 1996 to 2009. He speaks on many subjects to many Horticultural Societies in Southern Ontario, occasionally sat in for Ed Lawrence on CBC’s Ontario Today, was the first president of the Greater Toronto Bulb Society and is a member of numerous horticultural societies (Toronto Botanical Garden, Ontario Rock Garden and Hardy Plant Society, International Clematis Society). His current gardening passions are tuberous Begonias and Clematis, Daffodils, Summer Bulbs and Tulips.
