Epping Horticultural Society

...was started in 1939 and is still run today by volunteers. Affiliated to The Royal Horticultural Society and The National Vegetable Society, we have over 400 members, and welcome all levels of gardener, from those who like to potter, to serious gardeners and allotment holders, to those who grow for shows.

Our activities include:

  • Considerable discounts for members for seeds, bulbs and a wide range of composts, fertilisers and pest control materials – see our Trading page for more details
  • Trips for members to the RHS and other national gardens of interest
  • Hosting specialist lectures and discussions
  • Encouraging an association of all horticultural, garden and allotment societies in the region

All this for just £2 per year - now that's amazing value! If you would like to join contact us here.
