Since 1919, the aim of the Long Ashton Horticultural Society has been to promote flower and vegetable growing, and to bring people together to learn from each other. The centrepiece of our year is our Annual Show, a community event, for villagers to share with each other the amazing things that they have grown, cooked, photographed or made. But we also hold regular events throughout the year, including visits and talks. See our 2024 planned events here.

Unfortunately, the planned visit to the lower graveyard at Long Ashton Parish Church has had to be cancelled. In the meantime if you are able to visit the wildflower area of the Lower Burial Ground yourself you’ll be able to see Ted Baker’s (former President of LAHS) memorial tree which is a perry pear called Judge Amphlet plus its pollinating partner, an eating pear called Jargonelle. The Jargonelle has been planted to commemorate the coronation of King Charles III. Commemorative plaques are being sourced for each tree.

Members should watch out for emails about visits to fellow members’ gardens, as these may be scheduled at fairly short notice. Our next scheduled event is then the annual plant sale outside the Co-Op on Saturday 11th May.

The 98th Annual Show will take place on Saturday 7th September 2024 in the Village Hall. We invite everyone to join us to take part, visit the show and to enjoy the delicious home-made cakes served by our team of volunteers.
