Elham Gardening Society
Join Us in Elham Village Hall
Elham village is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the North Downs.
Elham Gardening Society is very active and welcomes anyone wishing to join.
None of our members feel they are super efficient gardeners - they just like doing it, mistakes and all!
Our meetings take place on the third Thursday of each month in Peggy Pike Room at Elham Village Hall at 7.30pm.
You won't feel out of place and you can join there, or click below to contact our Membership Secretary.
We offer wide ranging and interesting talks, everything from 'Plant Hunting in Iran' to 'Floral Clocks'.
Also check out our Events Page for Coffee Mornings & Sales.
You will be kept up to date about everything we do by regular emails if you are a Gardening Society member.
We have a popular Spring Show in April. This is also the opportunity to buy your potato for the "Potato in a Bucket" competition, and a pelargonium plug plant for the "Chairman's Challenge" both are judged at the main Summer Show. There will be plants, produce and of course, home-made cakes for sale.
The Annual Summer Show takes place on the last Saturday in July and is open to everyone. It is now more than 125 years old, and is regarded as one of the best in Kent! There is a wide range of Classes which not only cover Vegetables and Flowers but include Domestic, Handicrafts, Art and Photography.
We have occasional local garden visits. Anyone is welcome to come along even if you are not yet a member.
We have established an annual tour in June to visit a series of gardens in various regions.
