The Show

Every year the society organises the annual horticultural show which takes place around the first week of September. We try to maintain a balance of official RHS judging standards with a friendly atmosphere and help for those new to showing.


Every year the society tries to offer three tips to sites around Britain of  horticultural interest. Your continued support is vital for the trips to go ahead. .
