May 25: Toni Sinclair “An Insight into Plant Competitions”

Toni Sinclair has haP1080985d an interest in horticulture since early childhood in the Niagara area, helping her father in the family garden.  Several years later she was invited to attend the Horticultural Society meeting in Grimsby, and her interest just blossomed.  In the 1980s Toni signed up for the first of several floral design courses through the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington.  That was followed by an RBG Horticultural Judging Accreditation Course, taking three years to complete, along with on-going courses to keep abreast of modifications to hort. judging  and the latest trends in floral design.  She also earned a horticultural certificate from Niagara College.   Toni and her husband retired to Buckhorn  in 2003, and she immediately joined the Lakefield Horticultural Society, where she is part of the flower show committee.  Her life now can be summarized by the letter G –  golf,  genealogy,   grandchildren, and of course, gardening.  

On May 25, Toni will help to de-mystify the idea of Flower Show competitions by judging the PHS Spring Flower competition in front of the entire audience.  She’ll explain each class and the entrants, and award prizes on the spot.  It should be an insightful presentation!
