Join Leigh & District Cottage Garden Society

While the current situation continues the Committee reluctantly cancelled both the Summer and Autumn Shows. We are hoping to continue to offer talks from gardening experts & home crafts however we are planning to do these virtually. Enjoy discounts at local garden centres and more...

We are a thriving, informal and friendly society in a village in the heart of the Surrey countryside. We've been around since 1891 and are affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society and have close associations with the Parish Council and South & South East in Bloom. In 2018, the village was awarded Silver and in 2019 the village achieved Silver Gilt.

Our key purpose is to nurture and support the culture of fruit, flowers and vegetables and of home crafts within our community. We try and keep our programme of events fresh & exciting getting together regularly for talks and presentations, seed swaps, visiting Gardens and other Garden Shows across the year. 

Our main events in the year are the Summer and Autumn Shows organised by Committee Members. Membership is open to all from gardening novices to specialists. There are opportunities to share your enthusiasm with like-minded people, share your skills, learn new skills, get inspired about your environment, as well as getting involved with your community.
