Enjoy gardening? Join the Horticultural Society - Millstone News
Lanark County Master Gardeners; Field trips, garden tours and flower shows; Member discounts from numerous local gardening businesses; Access to the Ontario Horticultural Association; and an annual plant sale offering vegetables and plants at discount prices (Saturday, May 11 this year). In addition, following each meeting, you'll enjoy refreshments and have time to share your gardening experiences or get personal one-on-one help. Raffles at each meeting provide a chance to win useful garden-related items.
A&DHS volunteer members spend an amazing number of hours planting and maintaining public gardens at the Cenotaph, Almonte Library (large circular bed and Albert's Garden), Peace Park, Veteran's Walkway, and Arena. Volunteers are also responsible for planting, weeding and deadheading the sidewalk planters that are placed on Mill Street and in front of the legion. One exciting initiative that the members have undertaken, is the re-invention of the Library Garden as a pollinator-friendly perennial garden. This project was begun in 2018 and will continue in 2019.
If you like gardening but do not have an opportunity to do so where you live, why not join the Society to have the opportunity to partake in a hobby you enjoy. High school students are most welcome to join us and can apply their volunteer hours toward the 40-hour Ontario community involvement requirement.
With the cooperation of the Mississippi Mills Beautification Committee, Society members assemble thank-you gifts, and select, photograph and submit winners to the Canadian Gazette and Millstone News for the ‘Yard of the Week'. We hope to continue our partnership with Naismith School by continuing to plant flower and vegetable seeds with the Junior and Senior Kindergarten classes in the spring. These seedlings are then planted in the kindergarten play area and planters constructed by volunteers in front of the play area. When the students return to school in September, they enjoy fresh vegetables.
Meetings are held the 4th Monday of the month (except in July and December at 7:30 P.M. at the Cornerstone Community Church (next to the Almonte Roundabout at the corner of Conc. 11A and County Rd. 49). Pot luck suppers are held at the meetings in August and November. Membership is only $10 per year and any person 16 years of age or over may become a member. Registration for the 2019 season will take place at our first meeting on Monday, January 28 from 7:00 to 7:30 P.M. an... (Millstone News)Jan 25, 2019

Why a Canadian flower exporter is limiting growth in US
Barbara Jeffery-Gibson and general manager Rodd Gibson of Ontario-based Jeffery's Greenhouses. Jeffery's Greenhouses, a third-generation flower grower and plant supplier in St. Catharines, Ont., exports 30 per cent of its products annually to the United States. So the company was watching the recent North American free-trade talks with concern. But even now that the deal has been concluded, the company is not resting on its laurels. The flower grower exports its potted plants – hydrangeas, cyclamens, potted mums and poinsettias – to 29 Home Depot stores in Western New York. In Ontario, it sells its flowers in 55 of the home improvement stores. "We've been selling to Home Depot for the past 20 years," says Rodd Gibson, general manager. "We started with a few stores in Buffalo and ste... Sep 10, 2018
GREENFILE COLUMN: “Farmer-Florists” Fresh, Local Cut Flowers
In Canada, Melanie Harrington established Dahlia May Flower Farms on her family farm in Trenton, Ontario after reading Benzakein's book and deciding to take a workshop on Floret Farm in Washington. With over 60,000 Instagram followers (@dahliamayflowerfarm), Harrington has no problem marketing her sustainably grown, unique and often heirloom varieties from her roadside stand to local florists.
The beauty of flowers, of course, is that they sell themselves. "A lot of trends from the local-food movement are definitely spilling over", Melanie told Ben when he dropped by the farm where she now produces row upon row of colourful flowers for cutting. "A handful of commercial greenhouses in the Niagara area have also been switched over to marijuana production, which puts a crunch on supply of greenhouse space. There's a lot of trends coming together, but I'm just happy to focus on what I enjoy doing – being creative and growing beautiful flowers."
Located in Thornhill Ontario, Antonio Valente is a perfect example of how the farmer-florist trend is taking hold even in more urban environments. Valente was a substitute teacher with a passion for flowers when he started selling cut flowers from the beds he kept in his parent's backyard.
Also marketing himself through Instagram, where he posts rich photography from his garden as well as how-to videos at @antonionvalenteflowers, he recently took over his parent's half-acre property and still can't grow enough to meet demand. "I'm competing with larger growers who are producing acres of flowers, so I grow varieties that a florist wouldn't typically find from a wholesaler, heirlooms such as dahlias, Gerrie Hoek and Pam Howden, and foxglove Sutton's apricot. This allows me to differentiate myself and compete with the big guys."
Florist Rebecca De Oliveira, of Blush & Bloom Flower Studio, is buying more of her fresh cut flowers from these farmer-florists as the trend continues. De Oliveira's enthusiasm was apparent... Jul 26, 2018
Grieving families protest 'duplicitous' website that reposts death notices to sell flower deliveries
Its CEO is Paco Leclerc of Montreal, according to his LinkedIn page.
Earlier this year, the parents of an Ontario child who died of cancer said they were "absolutely gutted" to see their son's obituary used in this way.
Similar complaints in Newfoundland led to suggestions from a lawyer that the practice of copying text from published obituaries violates intellectual property law, just as much as if Everhere had cut and pasted a literary short story.
The site offers the chance to post free messages of condolence, and it advertises flower deliveries through Bloomstoday, a florist based in Virginia that coordinates with local flower delivery services.
In the new Alberta case, Rick Laursen, who works in health and safety in the oil industry, moved into his parents' house in Calgary recently to help when his father Erik, 83, was diagnosed with cancer. Erik's wife and Rick's mother Margaret, 92, has vascular related dementia, and would often ask about her husband. Rick would explain that he was very sick, but then she would forget and ask again. He found he was causing her fresh grief over and over again, multiple times a day.
After consulting with her physician and an expert with the Alberta health system, he settled on a plan of telling her that Erik was tired and needed to rest. Rick recalled the doctor saying the "best you can do is tell her he's not here right now and eventually she will stop asking … You are causing her more harm than good by making her live (with) something she cannot process."
She still does not know he died last week, and she did not attend the funeral on the weekend. She has never used a computer, so the online aspect did not bother Rick.
He gave details to a local funeral home, but then a modified version appeared on Everhere.com: "Sadly, on July 4th, 2018, Erik Laursen of Calgary, Alberta left us for a better place. Family and friends can send flowers and condolences in memory of the loved one …"
Much of the text had been copied word for word. Rick said they "completely stole from the real obituary."
But that opening quotation was not only newly written, it also managed to misinform mourne...
