Welcome to Our Website

The Surrey Horticultural Federation (SHF) was formed in 1976 as an umbrella organisation to link together Gardening Clubs and Horticultural Societies across Surrey and the edges of surrounding counties.

The advantages of belonging are shown on the Benefits Tab, and include links with many Specialist Societies and the Surrey Horticultural Judges and Lecturers Guild (including a supply of their latest 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 nearly 100 clubs within the SHF, details of which are in the Club Members section, so if you are looking to join a gardening 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 website is for the use of member clubs, who can advertise events and talks, and to keep in touch with other members of the gardening community. It will not be used to advertise outside commercial events.


Data Protection Act: The information provided by clubs will be held by the SHF Secretary for the Council and only used for SHF purposes such as Club Events in the Newsletter when only each club’s main contact’s name and telephone number will be shown. This also applies to the SHF website unless clubs have requested us to show an email address or put this on the events list themselves. In the event of clubs leaving the SHF, then their details will be held for a further 12 months only and then deleted. NO details will be given to outside companies or organisations.
