Welcome!

Maidstone Horticultual Society members welcome you to gardening with us in 2018

We are a friendly Society with around 100 enthusiastic members and welcome everyone whether they are new to gardening or have many years of experience.

If you are starting gardening and wish to learn, we have plenty of people to help you. As a member of Maidstone Horticultural Society you can enjoy a discount of 10% all year with a local retail Nursery (see below).

Why not come along to one of our Talks or Shows just for a visit?

Our aim is to enjoy all aspects of gardening and we organise a full programme of activities to choose from throughout the year:-

  • 7 Talks – on gardening subjects by visiting speakers – during Spring and Autumn evening meetings
  • 2 Shows in 2018, SPRING AND LATE SUMMER, featuring the main flowers and vegetables in season plus cookery, crafts and floral art
  • 3 Coach Outings – to well-known interesting gardens, some with houses – full day
  • A Summer Garden Party – an enjoyable social occasion in a member’s garden. Delicious tea, plant and book sales, raffle and games
  • A festive Sunday Lunch early in December – we enjoy a meal together followed by the Presentation of Trophies won at the shows

Our Talks and Shows are held in the halls of the Baptist Church in Knightrider Street, Maidstone ME15 6LU
