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 now closed for the winter. If you are able to volunteer for next year please let a committee member know or use the Contact Us page . More details about volunteering can be found here
Whilst we are not enforcing the wearing of face coverings or social distancing in the shed, 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.
The Summer Show took place at the Village Hall, Victoria Road on 5th August 2023. Many thanks to the organisers, helpers, exhibitors and visitors for making it a successful show. Despite the bouts of heavy rain during the day we did have some sunshine which enabled visitors to enjoy tea and cakes outside. Pictures are now available.
Our next winter season ‘talks’ for 2023/2024 take place on the last Thursday of the month. There is a change to the original talk advertised for 25th January 2024, which will now be about Honey Bees and other Pollinators. There will also be honey for sell. Details of all the talks are available here.
The Gratwicke Road Shed will open on 4th February 10-11am.
Membership for 2024 is now available. Payment can be made at the talks or at the shed.
