The Horticultural Society

The Horticultural Society has been a part of the community for over 50 years covering the villages of Brockham, Betchworth and Buckland in Surrey. 

The Society is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society and the Surrey Horticultural Federation and is for everyone, regardless of age, experience or the size of garden.  

The Society is keen to promote the many advantages of gardening as widely as possible and actively support our local schools. 

Prior to the current crisis the Society has held talks, shows, a visit to a member’s garden and a plant sale each year. Consideration is being given to what might be possible come the autumn show planned for Saturday 19th September. Event posters are published on this website’s events calendar.

June Update

The weather has been kind to everyone over the last few months of lockdown and our lives are gradually returning to a degree of normality.

Mother Nature hasn’t been idle during this time and your gardens have become an array of colour despite the lack of rain in May and early June.

Many of the keen gardeners amongst you have been growing and nurturing your produce and flowers in anticipation and hope for the Autumn Show.

If the Show is able to go ahead, we are well aware special arrangements will need to be made. The Show Secretary and the Committee are in the process of organising a few changes to the format and style of the Show to ensure maximum safety for everyone. These measures are being explored thoroughly and our members will be informed as soon as possible.

In the meantime, enjoy your gardens, keep planning and growing for the future and Stay Safe.

If you have caught the gardening bug and wish to join our Horticultural Society please send us an email  to ask for more details. Members receive 10% discount on plants at Buckland Nurseries.
