Ferndown & District Horticultural Association

Ferndown & District Horticultural Association is a long well established small and friendly gardening club and runs two annual shows in the spring and summer. Please read further down for specific dates of the shows.

We meet at 7.30pm at The Guide Hall, Spinneys Lane, Ferndown BH22 9BZ on the second Thursday of every month (except January & August). There are talks on a range of subjects connected with gardening, wildlife and interesting places locally or further afield.

A competition is held at every meeting for members to enter their garden flowers, floral art or produce. A £5 garden token prize is given to the winner of each class. Refreshments and a raffle are available.

Two annual flower shows are held each year - the Spring Show in April and the Summer Show in June. There are members and non-members classes, and schedules are available free from the Show Managers details below. Admission is free.

Come along as a visitor (£2) to see if you would like to join us. Subs are £8 for a full year - a handbook with full programme is issued sponsored by local trades people.
