About Us

We are keen gardeners in the Hove area on the south coast of the UK who meet every month to hear speakers on gardening-related subjects, have friendly competitions (we don’t generally go in for giant onions or pumpkins), go on outings to gardens and other places of interest and generally indulge and enjoy our interest in growing plants.


In May each year we hold a Plant Sale, which is very popular with local people and helps our funds so that we can keep our subscription low.


Hove Gardening Club was born 60 years ago when a group of friends and neighbours living on the south coast of England and all interested in gardening, decided to get together on a regular basis. The club they started, known as West Hove & District Horticultural Society for the first 53 years of its existence, is still going strong, meeting on the third Tuesday of each month at 7.30 pm.
