• Welcome gardeners

    Hatch End Horticultural Society provides local people with the opportunity to share their enthusiasm for, and learn more about flower, fruit and vegetable gardening.

    The objective of the Society is “to promote and encourage the cultivation of flowers, fruit and vegetables and the interest of members towards that end”.

    Saturday 15th June 2024 2.30-5.00pm

    HEHS annual Afternoon Tea event in the delightful garden of Brenda and Roy Jakes at 12 Haywood Close at Pinner Green.

  • Autumn 2023 Show Gallery

    Autumn 2023 Show Gallery

    Autumn 2023 show took place on Saturday 16th September and we all agreed it was the best show in recent history – a hugely successful, busy and enjoyable event. The committee would like to extend their thanks to all those who attended and helped to make it such a wonderful occasion, to the people who helped set up and clear the the room, to all the exhibitors, to the judges, to the plant and raffle stalls, to the kitchen and especially to those who baked such a delicious range of cakes. Also special thanks to Janath for the majority of pictures below.

  • Summer 2023

    2023 got off to a very cold start, with a prolonged period of frost in mid-January, so hopefully many of our nasty bugs would have been removed.

    2023 will also be noted for its long, cold and very wet Spring which delayed planting out. So far, the summer has remained unpredictable with a very hot and dry spell from June through to the beginning of July and cooler, but much needed, wetter weather from the middle of July.

    2023 is a landmark year for the HEHS as the Autumn show will be celebrating its 80th year. Rather aptly this is called an Oak Jubilee.

    Please check out our Outings and events page for the upcoming talks and garden visits for the remainder of the year.

    Just a quick reminder that live talks take place in the Hatch End Baptist Church, known as the Sanctuary, not the adjoining Church Hall which we used to use. For garden visits the coach leaves from Morrisons.

    As always, a special thank you to our Road Stewards who deliver the Bulletins to our non-email members. It is so important that these members are kept up-to-date with society events to enable them to join in when they wish.
