Ruislip Central Horticultural Society is a membership-based, non-profit organisation dedicated to all things horticultural.

The RCHS has a long and impressive history. Established in 1949 on the theme of ‘the encouragement and improvement of the best fruit, the most choice flowers and the most useful culinary vegetables‘, the Society has continued to promote all aspects of horticulture. 

Whilst we cherish our history, the Society strives to maintain a modern outlook, helping to promote horticulture to the next generation of gardeners and horticulturists. We are always working hard to bring in young blood to the society, to create  a future generation that can carry forward the satisfactions of mother nature

The Society acts as a valuable resource to its members on horticultural matters, as well as organising flower shows, talks and events. The RCHS promotes the interests of garden and allotment cultivators, bringing people together who have similar interests, to share experience and knowledge. The society also incorporates a specialist Cactus Section, which holds its own events and meetings, and also has a great part to play in our three shows each year. Membership to the RCHS includes access to all Cactus Section events. It also includes access to the Eastcote Horticultural Society trading centre. See drop down menu above for details.

Membership is open to all, with the group being based around the Ruislip, Uxbridge and Pinner areas. We have members from areas as far as Hayes, Northwood, Moor Park and Watford.

The annual membership fee is a nominal £5, with all proceeds being directed back into the Society.
