Traditional events

SWOHS hosts several events each year in Southwestern Ontario which might include meetings, auctions, a bus tour, a summer picnic, and a corn roast. SWOHS Members are also eligible to participate in all Ontario Hosta Society chapter events, and vice versa!

All upcoming events will be posted on this page for everyone to check out but the specifics of each event will be posted in the "Members Only" section, as you can appreciate that some of the information is private.

once in a lifetime trip - visit them at :  landofthe giants hostafarm.com

Each summer we endeavour to have at least one "Ontario Hosta Adventure" where members can travel, as a group, to visit private and public hosta gardens. Members will not want to forget their cameras and hosta "wish" list as each tour includes planned stops at retail nurseries and other attractions. Sit back and leave the driving to someone else during these wonderful excursions.

Picnic / Corn Roast

2019  date:   TBD

~details in "Members Only"  section~

Geared towards camaraderie, our SWOHS picnic will take place in the summer and will be in the private gardens of one of our members or at the display gardens of one of our retail members. Beverages will be provided at our annual picnic however all members are responsible for their own "lunch basket" and highly recommended lawn chair. Picnics are a great way to meet new friends and learn first hand about garden design, companion plants and hosta growing.

Corn Roast

2019  date:   TBD

~details in "Members Only"  section~

Another opportunity to visit a second lovely garden and to catch up with friends. This event is usually  held in conjunction with either the picnic or the AGM and is traditionally held a little later in the summer.


2019  date:   TBD

Our Annual General Meeting is an opportunity to wrap up the year. Come and share your growing successes with us, enter a contest, listen to a speaker and find out how to become more involved. Whether you would like to run for an Executive position, offer your garden for the following year's events or just come to socialize.... we look forward to seeing you!!!!
