This is a lively society that has been flourishing for almost thirty years. We have about 100 members who enjoy sharing knowledge and seeing other gardens. Two evenings a year we have a supper followed by a talk from a visiting lecturer. We have an annual coach outing to a notable garden and two car outings to interesting gardens closer to home. In May there is a Bring and Buy plant sale and the highlight of the year is the annual Flower Show in August.
Membership entitles discounts at several local nurseries.

Ever thought about renting an allotment? In these days of rising food prices and the focus on physical and mental health, growing your own fruit and vegetables has never seemed more important. Buxted Parish Council have some plots available which they are happy to rent to residents of Hadlow Down. The plots vary in size and can, in some circumstances, be tailored to satisfy the ambitions or limitations of the individual.
If you are interested, please contact Rosemary at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find out more by visiting the Buxted Parish Council website www.buxtedparishcouncil.gov.uk. Information about the allotments can be found under the Amenities drop down menu.
