• 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?

A Month To Go!

The 110th PHS Summer Show is but a month away, and preparations are in full swing!
Hopefully members will have received their schedules and membership renewal forms from our band of street helpers. If you’ve not thought about paying by standing order, do consider it, as this helps us be able to send out membership cards more promptly. Please also do let us know if any details change (email address, address) on the membership renewal form. If you aren’t a member, but would like to be, please contact us at enquiries@petershamhorticulturalsociety.org.uk.

We are of course looking forward to seeing the riches of your gardens, kitchens and creativity on show at the show, so please do look through the schedule and see what you might enter. There really is a class for everyone, from first-timers to old hands, and we love to see the show tables creaking under the weight of entries! All entry forms and entry fees should be with the Show Secretary by Wednesday 29 June; entries on the day attract a higher entry fee, so it pays to be organised.There is a digital copy of the schedule on the pages here, so if you haven’t got a hard copy, don’t despair!

We also are on the lookout for anybody who could spare us an hour or two on the Thursday evening (30 June), Friday morning (1 July) and Saturday morning (SHOW DAY!), to help set up the show. We are a small committee and benefit greatly from additional assistance from a loyal band of extra hands at this time, but we would love to have more. If you can help, please email me, president@petershamhorticulturalsociety.org.uk

Finally, we have joined the social media revolution, so if you are a Twitterer, do follow us on @Petershamhorti
