Edgworth Horticultural Society

Meetings are usually held on 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7.30 pm

Our members share a love of gardens and plants encompassing all levels of knowledge and expertise. Meetings are usually held on 3rd Wednesday of each month at The Barlow and are always well attended; we think this is not just down to the variety of topics and interesting speakers, but also the friendly atmosphere and possibly the home made cakes. In addition we hold an annual show on the third Saturday in August, organise several day trips each year, plus a mini-holiday break visiting gardens around the UK.

We are always trying to improve what we do and offer different things for our members and the full range of activities and meeting topics are available on our web site. If you just want to come to our monthly meetings, enjoy the talk and cakes and then go home, that’s fine: if you want to become more involved, great! Come and join us.
