Signs of Oak Wilt

The signs of oak wilt are:

Dull green, brown or yellow leaves

Cracks in the trunk

White, grey or black fungus

Early and sudden leaf drop

In June 2023, the first confirmed detection of oak wilt was found in Canada.

Oak wilt has been found in the following locations:

  • City of Niagara Falls, Ontario (first confirmed detection of oak wilt in Canada)

  • Township of Springwater, Ontario

  • Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario

To help prevent the spread, movement restrictions are in place on affected properties. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is working with other federal, provincial and municipal governments to survey the area and determine the next steps.

The 2024 NOTL Horticultural Society Garden Tour mission is to showcase a wide selection of gardens in each of the NOTL villages and rural areas on Saturday, July 6th, 2024.

Tour attendees will be invited to visit and enjoy these beautiful gardens at their leisure throughout the day.

To make this annual tour possible, we need your participation and support.

Our committee is aware that there are many beautiful and interesting gardens throughout all parts of our town. If you have a garden or know a family member, friend, or neighbour that has an interesting garden, that visitors would appreciate the chance to visit, please let us know or suggest they contact us to talk about this opportunity.

We are looking for all types of gardens – perennial, annual, organic, pollinator or butterfly, water garden, cottage, modern, small, or even vegetable gardens. 

As you know, gardens are always a work in progress. Your garden does not have to be perfect or “done” – we’re looking for all types of “gardeners’ gardens” that our visitors can learn from and enjoy. You do not have to commit your entire garden to the tour – we can showcase just the front or the back garden or even a garden at the side of your home.

Please contact us to discuss this opportunity in more detail!
