Theydon Bois Horticultural Society was formed in May 1899 and has held an Annual Show every year since – except when interrupted by World Wars!


The Society is run by a committee of dedicated villagers who look after the planters in the village and have recently adopted the station flowerbeds. The Society also engages in the odd bit of ‘guerrilla gardening’, planting crocuses in the verges. We arrange two or three outings a year to gardens and stately homes and hold talks of general and specialised interest in the Village Hall, free to members.


You can join the Horticultural Society at a cost of only £2 per year by contacting a member of the committee, asking at a show or outing, or just waiting for them to knock on your door in the springtime! Membership entitles you to free admission to our show and talks, and reduced prices for trips.
