About Us

Details
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.
