Rock Garden Society (NARGS)
This searchable site offers a wealth of information about rock gardening
as well as links to the very best rock gardening sites in the world.
Check out previous years' listings of species included in their Seed
Exchange and their Bookstore. Even though OVRGHS
is a NARGS chapter which gives us access to some
terrific international speakers, you may want to become a NARGS
member so you can gain access to the full membership benefits.
This is the site for the umbrella group whose membership is made up
of Horticultural Societies throughout Ontario. OVRGHS
is a member society in OHA District 2. There are
links to the member societies' websites and plenty of information
about the state of horticulture in Ontario.

Their site includes an excellent seed-starting database.

2 member society. This site details their schedule of events
and is chock-full of lovely pictures of members' gardens.
This is a series of pages that give a brief but thorough geological
history of the region. Use the scrolling arrows. Rock gardeners have
to know their rocks...

2004. It features excellent how-tos and an enormous photo archive.
Don't try to rush through this site.
