Tour 2021 03


On July 25,2021 our Cobourg Garden Club had an open garden.  Four gardeners very generously opened their gardens  to our members. 

It was a glorious day. Each garden was uniquely different and interesting.  Every garden was pollinator friendly.






Our new Program Chair, Janet Sedgwick, is looking for feedback from CHS members on past speakers, suggestions for future topics and/or recommendations regarding specific speakers whose specialties would be of interest.

So, what tickes your fancy?  Large scale hardscaping?  Rock gardens?  Pathways?  Vermiculture?  Companion planting?  Xeriscaping?  Feng Shui garden design?

Please send your feedback via email to Janet’s attention at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


This year’s annual plant sale was held at the Cobourg Market on Saturday, May 22, 2021.  All covid-19 protocols were followed.  It was an early morning with plants being dropped off at the market by 7:00 a.m.  The volunteers quickly organized the plants for the 8:00 a.m. opening of the market.  It was a very busy morning with lots of interest in the Horticultural Society and the sale of many plants. 

A huge thank you to Valerie and Elaine Cowling who organized a plant and vegetable sale in their driveway with all proceeds going to the CHS.

Thank you to all those who donated plants, the volunteers, and Valerie and Elaine in helping make this year’s plant sale such a success!
