October 3, 2020: CANCELLED DUE TO COVID
Guest Speaker: Tonia Parker
Due to the cancelation of the meeting CHS will plan to video Ms. Parker creating the fall displays and share her demo on our social media platforms.
When the weather turns chilly, chrysanthemums and ornamental kale are the gardening defaults for autumn colour, but what else is out there? Horticulturist Tonia Parker will join us for a “Show & Tell”
presentation of the huge array of plants and flowers available for autumn displays.
Tonia will be preparing two displays, one a doorstep planter style, the second, a Harvest Tabletop indoor display. She will pay particular attention to annuals, as well as suggestions for plants providing late season
food for pollinators. The displays will be raffled at the end.
Tonia Parker is a Professional Horticulturist and has been working on the Civic gardens and the street floral displays for the City of Oshawa for the past 4 years. She is a member of CHS.
