Kew Horticultural Society
Founded in 1938, the Kew Horticultural Society is the focus for gardeners and garden-lovers in Kew. The pride and joy of KHS is the summer show, one of the traditional horticultural shows held in London, but we also offer members a series of events throughout the year.
The annual Flower and Produce Show is held on Kew Green usually on August Bank Holiday Saturday.
Preparations for the 2019 Summer Show are already well underway. It is to be held in St Anne’s Church Hall on August Bank Holiday Saturday, that is 24th August. We attach both a poster for this year’s Summer Show and the Entry Form for the Show. Why not look the entry form over and study the classes. There is bound to be some which you can enter. Think what you might exhibit and get planting and growing now. We hope there will be something for everyone including children’s classes and cookery classes and floral art, not just flowers, fruit and vegetables. With the cookery classes the taste of the entry is the winning characteristic. The KHS Show is characterised by friendly participation rather than aggressive competition, so don’t be shy, come along on the day with your entries and join in.
Click on the poster to see it in full and the entry form can be found here.
The Kew Horticultural Society are affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society and as a consequence were able to obtain 1000 purple crocus corms as part of a joint venture between the RHS and The Rotary Club of Great Britain’s Purple4Polio campaign. Here are some of the bulbs that were planted in the churchyard of St Anne’s Kew Green by members of the KHS.
