About

Our Aim is to pursue knowledge and enjoyment of horticulture in its widest sense.

The society was formed in 1990 by a group of people who had studied horticulture at Houghall College and wished to develop their knowledge further in an informal setting.

We meet monthly on the second Tuesday of each month from October through to April. Each month a guest speaker gives a talk, usually with slides. The speakers are all knowledgeable horticulturalists or gardeners or other professionals in the plant field.

In the summer months we visit gardens and horticultural events as well as organise a yearly garden holiday.

Gardens recently visited on day trips include:

The Old Vicarage, Whixley, York
