Welcome to Our Website

The Surrey Horticultural Federation (SHF) was formed 40 years ago in 1976 as an umbrella organisation to link together Gardening Clubs and Horticultural Societies across Surrey and the edges of surrounding counties. You can read the full history of the federation here.

The advantages of belonging are shown on the Benefits Page, and include links with Specialist Societies and the Judges and Lecturers Guild (including access to their current lists), talks by well-known gardeners, visits to local gardens and nurseries, an inter-Club Quiz and copies of the SHF Newsletter listing club events and other items.

There are currently 90 clubs within the SHF, details of which can be found on the Members Page, so if you are looking to join a club, please contact the number given – we are sure you will get a friendly welcome.

The SHF is a non-profit making organisation run by a team of volunteers, and is dedicated to supporting all those who are enthusiastic about horticulture. This new website is for the use of the member clubs, who can advertise events and talks, and to keep in touch with other members of the gardening community.
