Welcome to the Caversham Horticultural Society web site.

We hope that you will find our web site information useful.

Forthcoming Events

Like most other non-essential societies we have cancelled all forthcoming events until further notice.  We will let you know when our next event is in due course.

The trading shed is also closed until further notice.

We think it is likely that the plant sale in May and the outing in June will also be cancelled or postponed, we will confirm this by email to our members nearer the time. 

Autumn Show

Our Autumn Show will be held on Saturday 12th September 2020 at Emmer Green Primary School Hall.  Currently we are hoping this will still go ahead and we would encourage you to take a look at the schedule and see if you can use your lockdown to grow something for the show!

Shed Opening (currently closed)

Our Trading Shed on Oakley Road is normally open every Saturday until the end of October from 10am to 11:30am.   We sell everything for your allotment and gardening needs and we are confident you will be pleasantly surprised by our prices (and expertise!).  .

The shed is well stocked with fertilisers, both organic and chemical, as well as seed and potting compost and award winner farmyard manure (always a popular item).  Don't buy cheap compost from DIY stores, buy our top quality makes - your plants will thank you for this by producing better growth, flowers and crops!  We also stock a variety of pest control products and a peat-free range of compost recommended by the RHS.  Don't forget our shed stewards will transport your heavy goods to the boot of your car as part of our old fashioned customer service.

Next Plant Sale : our next sale is in May at the Oakley Road allotments, 10-11:30am.  Donate your spare plants and seeds then buy something new, very good prices!
