What's on in Wolvercote

Wolvercote Horticultural Society

If gardens and gardening, plants, flowers, fruit and vegetables are your passion then you have come to the right place.  As a member of the Wolvercote Horticultural Society there are talks, garden visits, plant sales and seasonal gatherings to enjoy.  And the three annual shows are a celebration of just what people can achieve – not only garden and allotment produce, but floral art, cookery, handicrafts and photography - with a wide range of classes (and prizes!) for both children and adults.

The President, Chairman and other Officers of the Society are elected at the Annual General Meeting, held in January, and serve for one year from that date.  Click here for a list of current incumbents.

The Society wishes to thank all those who have donated trophies, gifts and items for sale, and also those who help in other ways to make our functions successful.

Membership benefits
These include discounts at Yarnton Nurseries, Cassington and Hilltop Garden Centres and Burford Garden Centre (plants only).  Single membership costs £5.00 p.a. and for a couple is £7.00 p.a.  To find out about membership please contact Sandra Clarke.
