What We Do

We are a small group of volunteers who have studied horticulture extensively. We offer free, sustainable advice to home gardeners at local fairs, garden shows and other events around The County.

We offer gardening advice through our email, and on our Face Book page. You can ask us a question, just click on the Contact Us and we’ll get back to you.

We give educational talks, presentations and demonstrations around The County and provide articles on a variety of garden topics on our website. In addition, we help maintain the Heritage Gardens at Macaulay House and we also offer plants to home gardeners at our annual Plant Sale in the spring.

Here’s a few photos of us in action!

St Andrew’s Garden Fair where we gave advice on pruning, did a container planting demonstration and a workshop on Square Foot Gardening.

We recently got together at The Royal in Picton for our annual Christmas Lunch.

A very Merry Christmas to all of you!

We were delighted to be invited to be part of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Town and Country Garden Tour on Saturday, July 3rd. This annual garden tour raises funds for the CFUW scholarship program.

We want to thank all the people who came to the garden and we were happy to answer so many gardening questions.

Our hosts, Dave and Sharon Little, were fun-loving grandparents who had created a whimsical  children’s garden for their grand children.  Dave could be seen driving around the property on his “Flintmobile” and there were wonderful features hidden throughout the garden for the children to find and enjoy.  Master Gardeners June Crocco, Gail Walker and Master Gardeners in Training Katie Middleton and Aleksa Kaye thoroughly enjoyed their day in Dave and Sharon’s garden.

Many thanks to June Crocco and Kate Middleton for the photographs.


Thank you to all the people who came to our plant sales at Wellington Market.



Seedy Saturday Seed Swap was a great success this year.  We we all glad to get outside and meet up with other gardeners.













On a sunny day in October, after our very successful Fall Bulb Sale, we got together and planted 400+ daffodil bulbs at PEFAC (Prince Edward Fitness & Aquatic Centre).  We wanted to give back to our community and thank them for their support.  Thank You.  It will be a beautiful display in the spring!  Many thanks to Carol Wilson for the photographs.

We always enjoy the Milford Fair. It’s a lively fair with lots of visitors, many of whom drop by our tent to ask a question, or just to say hello.

We give presentations throughout the area.  We will be happy to address your group, just drop us a line and let us know what you’d like us to talk about.  Here, one of our Master Gardeners is talking to the Newcomers Group in Wellington about how to become a Master Gardener and what resources are available for gardeners in our area.

Each year in May we have our annual plant sale.  We grow most of the plants ourselves and have a wide range of plants for sale.  We use the funds to pay for our MGiT’s (Master Gardeners in Training) courses.  It’s a fun day and the prices are very reasonable, come out and meet the Master Gardeners in The County.

We like to have a pot luck during the late spring to get together socially.
