About Us

We are a local gardening club in Biddenden in Kent. We are a friendly group of people with the same interest - ‘gardening’ - whether it be flowers, fruit or vegetables - our aim is to assist each other with any problems and generally enjoy our meetings.

The ethos of the Biddenden Horticultural Society is to enjoy being with like-minded people who share an interest in gardening, to have informative evening meetings with either a speaker or members sharing their expertise, and to get together for outings locally and further afield. The Autumn show, although it is a competition, is really just for fun. We want to keep it all light hearted and jolly, and for members to have a relaxing evening.

At our meetings we regularly hold quizzes, sell and swap plants and excess produce with other members and our last meeting of the year is our AGM with a Cheese and Wine Evening.


Why not come and join us? If you like what you see, maybe you would like to join. It is not expensive and you could meet some new friends.
