The Royal Horticultural Society

Buxted Horticultural Society

The society was founded in 1870 and retains a certain old fashioned charm of the true village society, bringing together both amateur gardeners, seasoned experts and 'have a go' members of the local community to exhibit their blooms, pot plants, fruit and vegetables, flower arrangements, photographs and domestic / baking skills.

All exhibits are entered into classes as laid down by RHS standards, judged according to the class standards and prizes awarded.
We hold traditional flower and produce shows which have home-made cakes and refreshments available and raffles etc. We also hold other talks and outings throughout the year.”

New members always welcome.

We hope you enjoy visiting our website and that you will come and join us or come and support your oldest community society.
