2016 Trillium Recipients

August 8th 2016


The 2016 Trillium Program has awarded 49 Trilliums to Grimsby’s beautiful front garden viewable from the street.  Gardens include residential, condos, townhouses, apartment buildings, and non-residential properties.  This is the first year that our Trillium Program is based on nominations, and it was a great success.  Thanks to our gold and silver sponsors who made advertising possible for this new approach.  There were 110 nominations, 87 nominated gardens and 49 Trillium recipients.

We have listed the addresses on our website, blog and in the news media. This will mean that residents, friends and neighbours can enjoy a self-guided tour of Grimsby’s prettiest summer gardens.

Here are a few of the gardens...they will be posted on the website by the middle of August.







The recognition event is Wednesday, September 14th, at 7:30pm at Grimsby Town Hall.  We will be showcasing nominated and Trillium recipient garden owners and gardens. A social gathering with treats and coffee/tea etc will be part of the evening.

Grimsby Garden of the Month for August 2016

Garden of the Month - August 2016

The garden of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Forsythe on 18 Nelles Road South is aglow with many colours and textures sure to catch the eye. The basic colour scheme of green and white is highlighted with fuchsia impatiens and pink hydrangeas. What makes it so lovely is the striking red maple tree providing the much-needed shade during this dry, hot summer. The many hostas are tucked in between the burst of tall grasses, and augmented with delightful garden sculptures and interesting rock formations. The Japanese Willow, pruned to form a canopy above the rose barbary, provides a tranquil, shady spot to sit and watch the world go by. Thank you for adding to the natural beauty of Grimsby.
Winning gardens are chosen based on our criteria for curb appeal, colour design, and maintenance. Please visit our website at www.grimsbygardenclub.ca.
