Forty-six members of horticultural societies in Ingersoll, Tillsonburg, Waterloo and London Fanshawe, stopped in Kincardine Friday morning to tour some of the local gardens.

Hosted by the Kincardine and District Horticultural Society, the group checked out the flower gardens of Malcolm and Annette MacDonald on Princes Street, the Labyrinth garden in Geddes Environmental Park, the garden at the base of the giant flag pole beside Lake Huron on Harbour Street, and the gardens beside the boardwalk along the beach.

Tour guides for the event were Janet Moyser, past-president of the Kincardine horticultural society, and members Jean Johnson and Harriet Suter. The group had contacted president Shirley Thomas about including Kincardine on the three-day bus tour and was excited to visit this lakeside town.

Besides Kincardine, the bus tour went to Bayfield, Folmer Gardens near Walkerton, Cargill, Owen Sound, Southampton and Hanover.

Jan Torrell of Straffordville, said the Tillsonburg Horticultural Society organizes the annual bus tour and then opens it up to societies in the area, to travel to a different part of Ontario each year.
