Welcome - Come and Join Us!


We have been in existence for over 130 years as a community of gardening enthusiasts coming together to share knowledge, experience and friendship.

Meeting the second Thursday of each month between September and May we have many  interesting events including:

Seasonal parties
Annual shows
Gardening advice

Other than breaks during the 1st and 2nd World Wars and a brief period in the 1950's our horticultural society has been a continuous inspiration for many gardeners in the local area.

I received a message from Randy, one of our younger gardeners, who was wanting to build a shed for his gardening equipment.  He found this site, which gave him lots of information and tips on construction.  He thought if he passed it onto me to add to our website other people may find it useful too.    Many thanks Randy and anyone else who finds a useful website please let us know.  I think a directory of sites could be a useful  resource.

We have discounts on gardening items including seeds and plants.
