• Welcome to the Petersham Horticultural Society

    Petersham Horticultural Society was founded at the turn of the 20th Century. It is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to encourage and enthuse the families living in Petersham to enjoy their gardens. The Annual Flower Show is our biggest event of the year, drawing crowds from far and wide. Why not enter your roses in the show this year?

Getting ready for the show!

We are looking forward to this year’s show and hope that as many of you able to enter an exhibit are preparing for Saturday.  We have had a few requests re guidelines for some of the more “unusual” classes and in the spirit of being open to all with the information here are a couple of pointers…whilst we will not compromise our judges asking them to tell us how they judge we do provide some “hints” in our show schedule and shall add the following to next year’s schedule


Egg Section – the egg may be broken open to test for freshness


Photography Section – good photographic technique is assumed and this includes composition and how the photgraph presents an “interesting” picture to the viewer


Good luck and don’t forget…all entries must be staged by 10am.
