The Growers Group annual fund-raiser is all set for July 19.

This year the major fund-raising event will take place at Putzer Nursery, 7314 Sixth Line, Hornby (near Milton). Last year over $20,000 was raised toward industry research and scholarships.

Attendees can bid on top quality plant material at below-wholesale prices. And top quality is the key here, with the pride of growers evident as they show off their high-end plant material.
All industry donations are welcomed for auction, including plant material, related hard goods, garden giftware, silent auction items, etc. There will also be live judging of the Growers Awards of Excellence entries.

There is no fee to attend, just bring your staff and your trailer. A tour of the farm and preview of lots begin at 10:30 a.m, with lunch at 11:45. The auction starts at 1 p.m. sharp.  

To donate or for more information, contact Kristen McIntyre at auction@landscapeontario.com, or 1-800-265-5656, ext. 321.
