Brian Bergman's presentation will be "IN PURSUIT OF THE BLACK LILY".
Brian writes:
Picture of Black heart Lily Over the years the world of lilies has changed dramatically. In 30 years we went from yellows and oranges to everything but black and blue. Dutch Breeder’s Rights has revolutionized the world of lilies. Growing lilies was a specialty prior to 1990. After 1990, with Dutch domination of the lily bulb market, lilies became part of perennial gardens.
I am part of the generation that saw ‘Enchantment’ and ‘Black Beauty’ become almost extinct because new material was introduced. OT, LA, OA, OL, etc. became common acronyms in the lily world. This takes me to me. My hybrid focus changed in 1994. My talk will highlight my experiences in creating new lilies. It will go from the expected to the unexpected.
Picture of Lily flower Where are we currently? Do we want a black lily, and what will it look like? Black heart lilies--the aficionados’ goal? How do you obtain it? My presentation will tell you about my experiences and insights to this goal. I will bring seed that has potential for my stated goals; an auction will follow after the presentation. These are state of the art seeds that have potential. Do you want to have a Black Lily or the Black heart Lily? Come and bid.

Annual General Meeting
Sunday, April 18th, 2010, 1:30 p.m.

Our speaker at the Annual General Meeting is Ken Parker, the proprietor of Sweet Grass Gardens. He describes the nursery as a hobby that grew out of control.
As a homeowner, Ken was faced with the challenge of gardening in heavy clay and limestone. The inability to obtain native plants locally inspired the creation of the Six Nations based retail nursery.
Owned and operated by Ken and Linda Parker, Sweet Grass Gardens opened its doors to the public on May 15, 1996. The overwhelming interest in the nursery led to a feature spot on HGTV's "The Gardeners Journal".
Over the past few years Sweet Grass Gardens has made a name for itself throughout Canada and the U.S. as a leader in native plant knowledge. It is a small, family-run business hiring nursery staff from within the Six Nations community.
Sweet Grass Gardens has also had the pleasure of training community members in horticulture and landscaping for the Ogwehoweh Skills and Trades Training Centre in Ohsweken.
Linda and Ken had a lot of fun as guest landscapers in the W network's hit TV show "The Gardening Gamble". They were fortunate to be able to incorporate many native plants in their garden designs over the four years involved with the show.
Sweet Grass Gardens has taken the lead in promoting the use and benefits of native plants. For more that 15 years Sweet Grass Gardens has been helping homeowners, schools, and more recently corporate clients make healthy plant choices

Lily Judging School
Saturday, March 6th, 2010

The Ontario Regional Lily Society is sponsoring a Lily Judging School on Saturday, March. 6th (parts 1 and 2) and Sunday, July 9th (part 3). This will be an official North American Lily Society accredited school for members of the North American Lily Society, regional lily societies' members and others interested in becoming qualified lily judges. Please note that those interested in becoming accredited judges with the North American Lily Society must be/become members of N.A.L.S.
Ross Martin will be the official judge's training instructor, assisted by two experienced judges, Sandra-Pat Willis and Dr. Brian Bergman. In addition to new judging candidates, this course is recommended to all existing student judges and accredited judges who wish to update their judging skills. Existing judges are not required to write the two exams which will be offered at the end of each day's sessions.
The cost of the judges' training course is $30.00 which includes lunch on Saturday, March 6. The location of parts 1 and 2 is West Plains United Church, 549 Plains Road West, Burlington, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The church is almost opposite the Royal Botanical Gardens Headquarters building and floral gardens. Part 3 of the course will be at the Royal Botanical Gardens during the Ontario Regional Lily Society annual lily show.
For more information about the judges' training course please contact Brian Bergman at 416-614-6394 or Ross Martin at 905-692-3222. The booklet "Showing Lilies: A Handbook for Judges and Exhibitors" should be purchased in advance from Maureen Barber, Registrar, 336 Sandlewood Road, Oakville, ON L6L 3R8. The cost of the book is $15. The book should be studied before attending the course since the exam is based on both the book's content and the lecture material.
We think this will be a fun event – one we hope you will enjoy. Growing an exhibiting lilies can be a great experience and we hope that knowing more about your lilies and how they have evolved over the last fifty or so years in North America will astound you.

Renowned botanist Josef Halda will speak about
"Rare Bulbs from Turkey to China"

Josef Halda

Like many of his fellow Czech countrymen, Josef Halda traveled to the mountains at a very early age, first with his grandfather, and immediately he was drawn to the wonderful flowers. Encouraged by his family, he brought some home to grow in a garden. By the age of 12 he had his own collection of plants in his parents’ greenhouse. By age 16, he was corresponding with Lawrence Crocker, a partner in Siskiyou Rare Plants in Medford, Oregon and subsequently sent them cuttings of daphne arbuscula, a very hardy evergreen daphne which grows only on the limestone cliffs of the Muran Valley in Slovakia. This led to more correspondence with other growers in both Western Europe and North America, one of those remarkable occasions where gardening trumped politics, but it would be another 20 years before Josef would travel to America.
He and his wife, Jarmila, have collected seed of new discoveries in Turkey, the Caucasus, Central Asia, Siberia, West China and Upper Burma. Their Czech background has given them better access to remote regions in states of the former Soviet Union, where even now travel can be restricted at best, or worse, dangerous. They have also researched and published monographs for primula, gentiana, daphne, paeonia and androsace.
This is a wonderful opportunity to be taken to another realm by one of the world’s great field botanist and growers. Josef Halda will speak to members on the topic of “Rare Bulbs from Turkey to China.”
The photos will portray both plants we have never seen and natural habitats which can hardly be described. From this vast region originate many of the hardy bulbs grown in our gardens. There are many more that are yet uncultivated, but may soon be here.
The meeting will start at 12:45 p.m. with the O.R.L.S. Annual General Membership Meeting,
with the featured speaker to follow by about 2:00 p.m.

He will touch on various aspects such as:
  • focal point
  • depth of field
  • camera angle
  • lenses
  • lighting
  • manual settings vs automatic
  • peripherals
  • post production (why all those lily trees look so spectacular)
And he will give us a brief tour of one of his favourite gardens.

Fall Meeting
Sunday, November 4, 2007, 1:30 p.m.
