The Applewood Garden Club of Mississauga Ontario is a small community-based club.
Most members live in south Mississauga–Applewood Acres, Orchard Heights, Sherway Gardens, Clarkson and Port Credit–but some hail from Oakville and Etobicoke.
Need we say that no matter where you live, you’re welcome as a member or guest at our meetings and events.
Our focus is horticultural, of course, but we also love to socialize.
A Christmas dinner and a June meeting in a member’s garden, with refreshments, are two of our social events.
We also believe in giving back to the community, and have raised thousands of dollars in support of deserving local organizations.

Little Known Gems for the Landscape, Part 2
May 16, 2019
Tucked away in a little pocket of microclimate between the Niagara escarpment and Lake Ontario, Vineland Nurseries in Beamsville offers an afternoon of happy browsing for gardeners, but in May it’s coming to our meeting.
Rather, its owner, Jim Lounsbery, is paying us a visit, bringing samples of his dwarf and unusual shrubs and evergreens to discuss. (He’ll be happy to sell what he brings to interested members, too.) His talk,Little Known Gems for the Landscape, Part 2, looks at native plants and conifers underutilized in the small urban landscape with slides as well as the real thing.
Jim has owned Vineland Nurseries, which specializes in dwarf and unsual evergreens, Japanese maples, bamboo, rhododendrons and heathers, with his wife, Simone, for more than 35 years. A certified arborist, Jim is also an instructor of horticulture and landscape design at Mohawk College, and has taught at Humber College, Niagara Parks and Humber College. He also supervised the arboretum and trails system at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton.
