Downton Horticultural Society Anyone with an interest in gardening is welcome to join the Downton Horticultural Society. Our members range from armchair gardeners to those who exhibit in national shows, from beginners to experts. We hold both Summer and Autumn Shows in the Memorial Hall and arrange about four evening meetings when a local expert comes along to talk about some aspect of gardening. We also arrange a social visit during June to a local garden, a coach outing to a garden further afield, and hold a Plant Sale in the spring to raise funds. Entry to our shows is free but we do make a small charge for the evening talks unless you are a member. Membership is £6 per year and you can join at any of our events. There is no pressure for members to exhibit at our shows. Please come along, you will be very welcome. For further details contact Gordon Bishop, DHS Chair (511475).
