The Verwood and District Horticultural Society is affiliated to : 

  • The Royal Horticultural Society

  • The Dorset Federation of Horticultural Societies

About Us

The Society's members join us from Verwood and surrounding areas - Woodlands, Three Legged Cross, Cranborne, Edmondsham and West Moors.  However, we welcome anyone with an interest in gardening!

Our friendly members are varied - some have an extensive knowledge of plants and gardening, whereas others are not so green-fingered but enjoy the appreciation of flowers, visiting gardens and meeting others.  We also welcome beginners to gardening - those who want to learn how to get more out of their green spaces!

We meet on a monthly basis at the Verwood Memorial Hall for a talk, refreshments and a raffle.  We hold annual shows, a plant sale and enjoy a summer social.  We also plan visits to gardens, both local and nationwide.

*NEW FOR 2024

  • We hold a "Bloom of the Month" competition - bring your bloom and display at our monthly meetings.  One of our members will be selected to judge and award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.  A monthly trophy will be awarded, and points will be aggregated over the year to find our Annual Prize Winner!

  • Your gardening questions can be submitted at each meeting.  The following month we will open it up to the group to answer!
