Sibford Horticultural Society (The Horti)

We are an enthusiastic, friendly society, offering regular meetings, outings and plant sales. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month – see the programme below for details. The village hall will be open from 7.10pm and you can enjoy refreshments before the formal meeting begins at 7.30pm.

All are welcome and no gardening experience is necessary. Membership is £10 per annum and non-members pay £3 to attend a talk.

We hold two shows, one in the Spring and one in the Summer.

Come along, bring a friend and enjoy our programme of speakers and garden visits.

Contact Gil on 780 543 or Helen on 780 380 for more information.

If you are not currently a member and would like to join please contact our Horti treasurer, John Berry on 07812 544 851. He will take your payment and issue your membership card and programme.  John holds the list of members so, if in any doubt, please do check with him that you are on it.

Plant sales

Plants can be bought at our shows, or all year round from Sue Bannister by prior arrangement. If there is something you are looking for or if you would like help with choosing the right plant, please contact Sue on 780 365 or
