Affiliated to the
Royal Horticultural Society
The Society welcomes new members! Membership is open to all.

The Society's objects are to encourage and promote public interest in horticulture, including the culture of flowers, fruit and vegetables.
With 600 household members, and celebrating our 52nd year, our active Committee work 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 Shows always provide a magnificent show 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. 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.


Our first talk of the year takes place on March 21st at a once only start time of 7.30pm in the Parish Rooms, Stock Lane.
Fiona Edmund will talk about 'Planting for scent all year round'. Fiona opens her gardens to the public and if you want to learn more, visit Green Island Gardens in Colchester.

A message fron Darren Lorigo (who gave a talk to us last year):-

I will be presenting a new garden talk on Sunday, March 12th at the beautiful Quay Theatre in Sudbury.
It is called 'Green Elements: Cultivating Your Garden In Extraordinary Times' - a title that seems most apt now....
It will mix garden techniques and ideas with thoughts on how what we grow in our gardens can affect the world we live in. I hope to present you a fun, interesting and useful talk.
