Northiam Horticultural Society

Founded in 1897, we’re one of the oldest Horticultural Societies in the UK, having celebrated our 120th anniversary in 2017.  We’re a thriving Society with over 250 members and we welcome everyone with an interest in plants and gardening, whatever your level of experience.

Membership is just £4.00 and we have a busy programme of lectures, social events, a coach trip, two newsletters a year and, of course, our Spring and Autumn shows where you can display the results of your labours and perhaps win a prize.  There are classes for flowers. flower arranging, fruit and veg, photography, arts and crafts, baking and classes for children. 

In May, we hold our very popular annual plant sale, with a wide range of annuals, perennials, shrubs, herbs and vegetables grown by the students of Great Dixter and the members.  For over 50 years the Society has been associated with Great Dixter and we are very privileged to have Fergus Garrett, CEO & Head Gardener at Great Dixter, as our President. 

If you are interested in joining please contact the Membership Secretary, Joan Davis on 01797 253458 or email for further information. We hope you see you at our events this year.
