At the Tilehurst Horticultural Association we aim to provide the gardening community of Tilehurst with horticultural supplies at reasonable prices, together with a lively programme of talks and activities throughout the year. Whatever your age or experience with gardening you are welcome. Please join us!
Our Trading shed at Gratwicke Road is open on Sunday from 10am-12noon . The Saturday opening trial has finished and awaiting feedback. So a big Thank You to both the existing and the additional volunteers. Whilst we are not enforcing the wearing of face coverings or social distancing, we do ask that members continue to exercise caution and have regard to the health and safety of others. Hand gel, face masks and gloves are all available for helpers and members. In particular, please do not come to the shed if you have any Coronavirus symptoms. As before, please come prepared to pay by card if you can. Not only has this proved popular with our customers, but it is also the preference of our cashiers, some of whom do not want to handle cash.
Thank you to all who donated plants and helped with the plant stall at the League of Friends Fete on 18th June. Although the day started fine and warm it soon turned windy and a lot cooler. We had a trickle of people all day, but gradually the plants began to disappear to their new homes . Also thank you to all of you who supported the stall by turning up to buy plants.
Our summer show is planned for 6th August 2022, but to make it a success we do need volunteers . We don’t expect an all day commitment, one or two hours would be helpful. Please see the Volunteer page for details about this and other ways you can help your association. The show schedule and seeds for the special class are available in the Trading Shed.
The Gratwicke Road Shed is open on Sundays between 10am-12noon. Booking for trips and Show Schedule are all available at the Trading Shed.
Membership is now due for 2022 and can be obtained at the trading shed or at the talks.
