We have evening meetings every month except January and invite speakers to talk on a variety of topics related to gardening and horticulture. These meetings are also an opportunity hear what else is happening in the area horticulturally and to meet other keen gardeners and share ideas, tips, friendship and plants.
Full details of the evening meetings we have planned for this year can be found on the Evening Meetings Page below.
We normally run three shows each year, one each in Spring, Summer and Autumn.
In 2021 we hope to be able to run our Autumn Show on September 1st and will also run the Summer one in July if restrictions allow.
The shows include competitions in various classes for flowers vegetables, jams and cakes.
There is also an annual competition to grow the best plant. Last year it was a Geranium. In 2021 it will be a Begonia. Plug plants are purchased in March and April and they will be judged later in the year
We also arrange group visits to gardens, horticultural shows and other places of interest.
Outings were cancelled in 2020 but we hope to resume them in 2021 and visit Thenford, Michael Hesseltine's garden.
There were two outings in 2019. The first to the Kew in May and the second to Lamport Hall and Gardens in September. There are photos on the Outings page.
Kenilworth Horticultural Society exists to further interest in horticulture, and provide activities of interest to members within Kenilworth and the surrounding district.
