Ashtead Horticultural Society was founded in 1875 and is thought to be one of the oldest Societies in Ashtead. It is a community based organisation run by elected volunteers for the benefit of its members and the community. Our main aim is to support an environment which is as sociable and friendly as possible.
The Society offers a programme of evening talks with guest speakers, two flower shows, an annual visit to a national garden, a coffee morning with sale of plants and cakes, summer walk to members’ gardens, and a newsletter as well as discounts for members at many local shops.
We have over 500 members who have an interest in gardening and plants. Some have large gardens, others small and some no gardens at all. We are not a group of experts; our knowledge is wide and varied. What we do have in common is an interest in horticulture and in learning more about it.
Calling all Parents, Schools and Children’s Groups!
We have updated the Junior classes in our Summer Show to be held on 16th July 2022 and introduced a new class for Groups of Children and Young People up to 14 years old. Click here to see details of all the classes and how to enter.
Picture of the month
Spring has truly sprung and we’re enjoying late blossom and tulips in our gardens, as well as getting to work sowing seeds and tackling weeds. If you’d like to stock up on local plants, and socialise with fellow gardeners, join us for our coffee morning and plant sale on May 14th. See Events for details. Plant donations will be received from Friday evening before.
