Over 100 years old and we are still serving Rayleigh and the surrounding community. We are one of the biggest horticultural societies with a very active committee. They work hard to provide activities of interest to all types of gardeners. These include the showman, the allotment holder, the plant enthusiast, or those who just like to potter round the garden.
We host 3 shows a year with magnificent displays of flowers, vegetables, domestic and handicraft sections. These are held at the Mill Arts & Event Centre, Rayleigh, and every show gets bigger as more people realise they have something to show.
Specialist children’s classes cover all ages up to 16 years, so the whole family can get involved.
Club Nights are held once a month, with a wide range of topics to interest everyone.
For new members, try our hints and tips on the store page.
Rayleigh Horticultural Society has its own Trading Store for members to purchase all their garden requirements at competitive prices. So come to the store and chat to one of our volunteers, and become a member.
