The Future is ZOOM

Last night 50 members of the RCHS logged in to watch the most fascinating and interesting talk. The feedback has been amazing so thank you to all of you who have written in to say how much you enjoyed it. The committee very much appreciate it.


Only a month to go now until Matthew Biggs joins us, and remember it is FREE!

If you are a current member your invite will arrive soon


thank you


So moving forward what happens now?

During the next week, we will be creating an up to date list of people who have membership for (2020/21) including many of you who have joined in the past few days. (You may not receive your membership card for a few more days however we know who you are.)
Only current members will then receive an invite to ZOOM for the following talks that we have arranged for you.
When you click on the link we will send you before the talk, it will inform the HOST that you wish to join the talk, we then will let you in to meet and enjoy seeing all other members and listen to the speaker. It is as simple as that. WE HOPE!

We have two great speakers lined up, on the 20th October 2020 we have John Amand. John and his team have won over 40 GOLD MEDALS at shows such as Chelsea, Hampton Court and Harrogate to name a few. John will be giving a talk on Bulbs. What John doesn’t know about bulbs isn’t worth knowing!

In November we have the fantastic Matthew Biggs. He is a radio personality in the UK, best known for his appearances on the long running BBC Radio 4 programme Gardeners’ Question Time. He has been a professional gardener for over 20 years, since studying at Pershore College of Horticulture and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions too
Both of these talks are complimentary for members!

If you want to receive an invite to the talks, please ensure you are an RCHS member for 2020/21 it is just £5.70 including postage for your card

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.
