About the Society

The Theydon Bois Horticultural Society was formed in May 1899 and has held an Annual Show every year since – except when interrupted by World Wars!

The Society is now run by a committee of dedicated Hort Soc Vegetables Poster 17-05-17 Smvillagers who look after the planters in the village and have recently adopted the station flowerbeds. The Society also engages in the odd bit of ‘guerrilla gardening’, planting crocuses in the verges. We arrange two or three outings a year to gardens and stately homes and hold talks of general and specialised interest in the Village Hall, free to members.

You can join the Horticultural Society at a cost of only £2 per year by contacting a member, asking at a show or outing, or just waiting for them to knock on your door in the springtime!
