Welcome to the Caversham Horticultural Society web site.

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

Forthcoming Events

We have some exciting events planned for 2018, see here or your membership card for dates.

Our next event is an earlier than normal talk on Wednesday January 24th, at Caversham Primary School starting at 7:45pm.  Our speaker is one of our members, Jim McCartney, who is a championship grower of vegetables and flowers.  His talk is a fantastic opportunity to hear him talk about how he grows his vegetables for showing and to get some hints and tips for your own show entries in our Autumn Show.  Free to members and a small charge to non-members, refreshments will be available after the talk for a small donation to cover costs.

Shed Opening

In 2018 our Trading Shed on Oakley Road is open EVERY Saturday from 3rd February until the end of October from 10am to 11:30am.    We have 9 varieties of seed potatoes for sale (kept in correct conditions, unlike the big shops), come early to get the biggest selection and avoid disappointment.

Come and see what else we sell and 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.  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 on Saturday 12th May at the Oakley Road allotments, 10-11:30am.  Donate your spare plants and seeds then buy something new, very good prices!
