The Summer Show has taken place and it was encouraging to see so many exhibits although we were limited to members and their families. I think we all enjoyed ourselves and it was great to meet up again after such a prolonged break

Dear Members and Visitors,



Saturday 7 AUGUST 2021 :  viewing 2.30 – 4.00pm


St Mark’s Lane is off North Heath Lane. The “Sussex Barn” pub is on the corner.

See further details in the Summer Show Section

Let us make the Summer Show of August 2021 a great success. Start planning your fruit, vegetable and specimen bloom entries now.

We also hope to recommence our winter meetings this autumn, and have been working on an interesting programme of speakers.

We will publish an update on evening garden visits and the planned trip to Wisley in due course.

With best wishes from the Committee

Horsham & District Horticultural Society

Horsham & District Horticultural Society was founded in 1945 to promote an interest in horticulture and to encourage gardening in Horsham and the surrounding district.  During the winter months from October to March we hold meetings on alternate Tuesdays starting at 7.30pm, at the Brighton Road Baptist Church, Brighton Road ,  Horsham, RH13 5BD.  The venue has disabled access

 Our winter meetings consist of illustrated lectures on various aspects of gardening, slides of visits to famous gardens at home and abroad and occasional practical demonstrations.  You are more than welcome to our meetings.

In the summer we run coach outings, and we also arrange evening visits to local gardens usually starting at 6.00pm.  Members travel by car to these locations and members without their own transport are encouraged to seek a lift from other members.

We run two flower shows a year, a Spring Show in late March /early April for spring flowers, and a Summer Show in August.   Members are invited to exhibit their flowers, fruit, vegetables, cookery, handicrafts and photographs. 

Members of the public are cordially invited to come and view our shows during the afternoons of show days and to see what we have to offer to potential members, but exhibiting in the shows is currently limited to our members.  So you need to join if you wish to exhibit.

Our yearly membership subscription for all this is £15 per person or £25 for a couple at the same address
