2020 is our Centenary Year so look out for special events on our Centenary page
Benfleet Horticultural Society has been in existence for almost 100 years. We currently have over 700 members, a number which is increasing year-on-year.
The Society is served by an active committee who manage the running of the Stores, organise three Flower Shows each year (which are growing in popularity), organise Talks and Quiz Nights, produce a Year Book and Newsletters, and arrange several Coach Outings each year.
The Society is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society.
The stores provides the finance to run the Society. It also provides contact with, and feedback from, the members. It is a meeting place for like-minded gardeners where problems (mainly gardening) can be discussed, and hopefully answers provided. Between the staff (all volunteers), there is a wealth of gardening experience.
We try to keep prices to an absolute minimum, whilst making sufficient profit to cover the costs of the Society. For example, we are very proud that our Seed Potatoes (usually around 14-16 varieties each year), regularly sell for substantially less when compared with local garden centres.
Come and see our Shows, get involved, and show your vegetables, flowers and crafts.
Visit the Stores at 423b High Road, South Benfleet, Essex SS7 5AF, and stock up on all your garden needs.
And why not become a Member? For only £2.50 per year for a whole household, you can enter into the shows, join us on outings, and probably save the equivalent of your annual membership fee the first time you purchase something in the stores.
