• 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?

On Saturday 21 October 2017 we are coming together with the Ham and Petersham Association to plant 200 daffodil bulbs on the grassy areas either side of the entrance to Cedar Heights. Come March and April next year, this planting will provide a bright welcome to those coming down Star and Garter Hill into Petersham, and will hopefully cheer up anybody sat in traffic behind the 65 bus on a wet Wednesday next spring.
If you are free on Saturday, please do come along and help; we will be gathering at The Old Stables, River Lane, Petersham at 10.30am, for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake, to fuel the bulb planting. The more of us who come to help, the quicker the bulbs will get into the ground, so even if you have just half an hour to spare, we’d be grateful for it!
If you have any other ideas about corners of the community which could do with some planting up, we’d love to hear about them and see what we can do to help make them bloom. Just email us at our Enquiries email and we’ll be in touch.
