Wolverhampton Horticultural Society

Welcome to the Wolverhampton Horticultural Society website. 


We are an active society promoting a range of different activities for anyone interested in gardening. We have monthly talks provided by gardening experts and a complete list of the speakers for 2019 can be found under the Programme page. A number of visits have also been arranged for later in the year and details can be found on the Society Trips 2019 page.

Our next meeting is on Wednesday 14 August at Beckminster Church Hall. This meeting is a talk by Roger Umpelby entitled “Weeds: An alternative look”.

Roger’s talk will consider weeds and their uses for medicines, edible weeds, flavouring, dyes and fibres. Also how weeds can also be beneficial to other plants and animals, provide food for animals and be ornamental.

Refreshments will be available from 7.00pm with the talk scheduled to start at 7.30pm.

SPECIAL OFFER: Non-members considering joining the society are welcome to attend this month’s talk for free.

The schedule for the Annual Show is also now available on the Annual Show 2019 page.
