Custodial history

There are also other Ontario garden clubs that do not fall under this umbrella.

In Nova Scotia the Nova Scotia Association of Garden Clubs incorporates several gardening clubs.

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition

This is an artificial collection, meaning that its materials were collected over time by different users, rather than being acquired by a single donor. Thus, the records’ original order and provenance have been lost.
