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 but think this is unlikely to be before the autumn.

The trading shed is now open, but we are not allowing customers inside the shed, all purchases will be done at the shed door and our volunteers will serve you.  We have been open on a fortnightly basis in July and August (please see your bulletin for details) but are pleased to announce we will be resuming our normal weekly opening from 5th September (every Saturday 10-11:30a,) until the end of October.

We don't know whether the Autumn Plant sale will go ahead, but the September talk and outing have also been cancelled. 

Autumn Show

Our Autumn Show IS CANCELLED, on advice from the RHS.  Sorry we know it's been a good growing year and we are disappointed not to be able to do this.  We have already rebooked for 2021 so we'll see you there instead.

Shed Opening

Our Trading Shed on Oakley Road is on Saturday morning 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 : might be in October, we will let you know nearer the time!
