garden2Welcome to the Lethbridge and District Horticultural Society website. Our society has been around since 1909. It was inactive during the First World War but resumed again in 1922 as an organization for area gardeners with all levels of expertise to share information on plants and gardening. The site provides information on society activities, past and upcoming, including monthly meetings which feature speakers on a variety of topics related to gardens and plants. As well, we’ll post gardening tips and a place for gardeners to share stories about their experiences with plants in the Backyard Blog. Click on the headings above under the photo for the information you’re looking for. If you think the site could offer more information, send us a note and we’ll see what we can do.

By the way, the photo in the page heading is of dew drops on an unfolding Dropmore Scarlet Honeysuckle vine leaf in a Lethbridge back yard.

    • The fellow who owns the Stove Pipe Company, Bernie Huizing, has an amazing orchid greenhouse on his own property. He is extremely knowledgeable and very worth tracking down. He will sell some of his plants too.

  1. There is another gardening site for the Lethbridge area; it is ‘I Can Garden.’ According to it there is a Chinook County Orchid Society, and Scott Erickson is the president. His email is listed as Erickson@arbsle.agr.ca All this info is courtesy of the Lethbridge and District Horticultural Society president, BJ Boulton-Gunn. Hope it helps.
