Tuesday, May 25, 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Whether you have a sprawling garden, a balcony, or a small space, you can grow summer bulbs. You may think these exotic, often fragrant flowers must be hard-to-grow, but nothing could be further from the truth. Dugald Cameron will show you how bulbs are in fact among the easiest plants to grow. You can have them blooming in just a few weeks after planting in moist soil and providing a little sunshine. In this presentation you’ll learn where to find bulbs, how to grow them, what they need to thrive, and how to store them over the winter. These “tender perennials” add an exotic tropic look to any garden, but as many are better grown in pots – you can grow them anywhere!

About Dugald Cameron
Dugald Cameron’s gardening career began at an early age in his English grandmother’s garden where he’d occasionally help out with weeding and digging. He must have “caught the bug” then because he’s been interested in plants and gardens ever since. Dugald started a mail order nursery Gardenimport with his father, Lynn Pashleigh, in 1983 because they couldn’t find the quality or selection of plants they wanted for their own gardens. Gardenimport was closed in December 2014 after 32 years of business.
Dugald was on the Board of Directors at The Toronto Botanical Garden for 13 years and continues to volunteer there for numerous events. He speaks on many subjects to Horticultural Societies in Southern Ontario and has sat in for Ed Lawrence on CBC’s Ontario Today. He was the first president of the Greater Toronto Bulb Society and is a member of numerous horticultural societies. His diverse gardening interests include spring & summer flowering bulbs, shrubs, perennials and clematis.
