The Warmington Horticultural Society (WHS) is affiliated with the Royal Horticultural Society. We are over 100 years old and have a thriving membership with many activities throughout the year.
Our biggest fundraiser is our fantastic yearly plant sale at the village hall each May which has customers queuing from early morning!
We also organise and run the hugely successful Warmington Village Show (fourth Saturday in July) which seems to grow bigger every year and includes baking, jams, preserves as well as fruit and vegetables, children's categories and an immense range of talents in the handicrafts sections, truly something for everyone!
We have a guest speaker at least twice a year.
We are a friendly and welcoming group. Membership costs £3 per year.

Warmington Annual Village Garden and Crafts Show
The annual show is an opportunity for villagers from Warmington and the surrounding area to enter a variety of classes to showcase their skills and create a wonderful display in the Village Hall. It is a great social occasion and there is also the chance to win prizes! There are around 130 classes within categories of gardens, flowers, vegetables, flower arranging, cookery and crafts. There are specific classes for children. It’s a fun and friendly show and we’re keen to help new exhibitors.
The annual show this year takes place on Saturday 28 July 2018. Printed schedules will be distributed to society members. You can download a PDF version of the 2017 schedule which includes the list of the classes and further information about the show and exhibiting by clicking here. The new 2018 schedule will be available soon. An Entry form can be downloaded by clicking here
