Pirbright Horticultural Society

We Love Gardening!

About Us

Pirbright Horticultural Society has existed for almost 100 years in the village of Pirbright, near Guildford in Surrey.  We hold regular monthly meetings during the year.  In the Spring we hold a plant sale at a member’s house.  In July we hold our very successful Annual Show which includes fruit, vegetables, flowers, produce and crafts.


Members pay an annual fee of £25 for families and £20 for individuals which pays for our interesting monthly speakers.  Members have free entry to the Annual Show.

Monthly Meetings

The meetings are held in the Club Room of Lord Pirbright’s Hall on the Green at Pirbright.  There is ample free parking and refreshments are offered during the meeting.  Our programme is booked up to a year in advance. 

Plant Sale

We hold an Annual Plant Sale at a member’s house.  The members contribute surplus plants from their gardens and there is a raffle and refreshments are served.  The sale adds greatly to the funds required to stage the Annual Show.

Annual Show

The Annual Show is our big event.  We publish a schedule in advance and members and non members are invited to enter as many as they wish  of the 100 or so classes available.  Entries are staged on the morning of the Show.  Judging takes place by RHS  registered Judges and then the Show is open to the public.  There are refreshments available and local businesses set up stalls adjacent to the hall.  There are many trophies and prizes awarded.

RHS Affiliation
