Welcome to the website of the Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society (RLHS).

RLHS is a thriving organization.  Members plant and maintain municipal gardens and support all manner of horticultural activities in the community.

In 2018 we are encouraging all our members to attend the OHA Convention in Kingston, On, details here

In 2017 we hosted the OHA District 3 Flower and Edible Garden show, it was an exciting summer!

In 2016, we launched our Fruit & Nut Tree Revitalization Program for the Rideau Lakes region. 

In 2014, we expanded our pollinator garden initiative, and planted two pear trees in the Township as part of our edible trees project.

2013 was a year of firsts for our Society. We planted our first community pollinator garden and saw the return of our much-loved garden tour. 

Our quarterly newsletter, The Lilypad, is published in March, June, September and December.  Lilypad Newsletters
