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
