 Coleman's Hatch Horticultural Society   

Welcome to Coleman's Hatch Horticultural Society's website..... 


The Coleman's Hatch Horticultural Society is a local society which enjoys affiliation to the Royal Horticultural Society. We are a small group but we have big aims! This year, we are aiming to spread the news of our work even further and encourage more and more residents from the area to get involved. 


We are pleased to announce the Open Gardens and Autumn Show dates for 2024 (see below) and we will be building on our successes from last year in order that 2024 is even better! We have some exciting developments in store so look out for these here on the website but also in the local press (the Chronicle, Forest Row Local and Ashdown Living magazines).


Our NOMINATED CHARITIES FOR 2024 to whom we will donate money from our work are locally-based Children's Forest and Taylor Made Dreams (see below).

Open Gardens 2024

This year we have 9 gardens and some of them are NEW for 2024. These have been kindly made available to the public by some of our residents. Come along and enjoy their beauty whilst also becoming inspired.


The 2024 event promises to be another great event with plant sales and refreshments available on the day too. 


Tickets are £5 and children go free.

Buy tickets in advance at the Cafe on June 13th or on the day on the green in front of The Hatch Inn.


We have a wonderful gallery of images from past years' events. 

Autumn Show 2024

Last year's event gives a flavour of what's to come in the 2024 show (September 14th) and we would love EVERYONE to come along and take part. As well as the wonderful plants, vegetables, flowers and produce entries, there were arts and crafts too. Our poetry tent, Tombola, Colemans Hatch Bowling Club display and refreshments provided entertainment for our host of visitors. 


This year's theme is 'SKY' so the possibilities are endless!!
