The Damerham and District Horticultural Society welcomes members from Damerham, Martin, Rockbourne, Whitsbury, Sandleheath and beyond. Membership of the society is open to anyone with an interest in gardens and gardening or who just enjoy meeting other local people with similar interests.
Annual membership costs £5.00 per person or £8.00 for a couple. Non members are always welcome to all our events for a small cost of £3.00.
The Society arranges about one event per month, including talkes, garden visits and workshops. The highlights of the year are our two shows. The first, in the spring is held in Damerham Village Hall. The summer show is held in a magnificent marquee on the sportsfield as part of the Damerham Summer Fair on the last Saturday in July. Non members are very welcome to enter both the spring and summer shows.
In early spring the annual Potato Day is held in Damerham Village Hall offers over 50 varieties of seed potatoes with other plants and shurbs available to buy.
Each May a plant sale is held in a garden in Martin, where there are teas, cakes and other stalls.
We look forward to welcoming you at our events
