The Society welcomes new members! Membership is open to all.
The Society’s objectives are to promote interest in horticulture, including the culture of flowers, fruit and vegetables. Furthermore, we wish to encourage the younger generation to get involved.
We have over 500 members and our active Committee works hard to provide activities of interest to all types of gardeners – whether you exhibit in shows, are an allotment holder, plant enthusiast or just like to potter around.
The Spring, Summer and Autumn Show always provide a magnificent display of flowers and vegetables in all sections. The Summer Show is the biggest event in Ingatestone with marquees holding horticultural and children’s competitions, a craft fair, displays and stalls by over 20 local organisations. The event attracts over 2,000 local people every year. As well as the shows, there is an annual plant sale and a garden competition, plus regular talks and organised coach outings to some of the best gardens in the South of England.
