Braughing Horticultural Society

Whether you have a window box or a wide expanse, a pocket handkerchief patch or a prairie sized plot, or no garden at all, or only a kitchen, or you just enjoy flower arranging, you are welcome at the Braughing Horticultural Society.

We hold two shows a year; in the Spring and Autumn with classes for seasonal flowers, fruit, & vegetables, flower arranging and a wide range of domestic classes where members can demonstrate their cooking skills. For those of you with a few chickens in your garden, we have classes for eggs in the Spring show as well as a popular photographic section. Our judges are local and professional, offering an expert eye and helpful suggestions.

Don't worry that your produce is not perfect Royal Horticultural Society grade - most is very far from it!! Interestingly, at our recent Autumn show every entrant was awarded a prize of some sort.
