Ewell Horticultural Association

Ewell Horticultural Association (EHA) has been supporting and serving the local community of Ewell and the surrounding areas since 1865, offering Residents encouragement and companionship in the enjoyment of their gardens. EHA has over 1,300 members and is thought to be amongst the oldest and largest Horticultural Associations in England.

About Us

EHA is a non-profit making community based organisation run by volunteers for the benefit of its members. New members are always welcome; membership is open to all from £2 per annum. Members are encouraged to participate in the 3 annual Shows by exhibiting their own produce of flowers, fruit and vegetables plus crafts & design and photographs. The Shows are held at Blenheim High School, Longmead Road, between Ewell and Epsom, which offers onsite car parking plus fully accessible facilities. Everyone who has attended our Shows has seen the stunning floral arrangements and almost certainly enjoyed the refreshments and delicious homemade cakes.

The Association also offers an annual programme of talks and trips for members, plus an opportunity to purchase good quality, locally grown, summer bedding plants at advantageous prices. Click here for the Order Form in PDF fprmat.

Members are entitled to discounts from 3 local companies Court Farm Garden Centre at Worcester Park, Beechcroft Nursery on Reigate Road, F Giles at Chessington Garden Centre, and also purchases of seeds and other plants from Dobies catalogue.

NEWS

Unfortunately our planned speaker for October has cancelled at short notice due to ill health. We are pleased that we have been able to persuade Paul Patton to return and give a talk entitled "Autumn Aspirations – Looking forward to Spring" to help us prepare now for the next growing season.

We have learnt that some members have been refused discount at Court Farm Garden Centre. Our Chairman is in contact with their management to try to get them to honour the agreement. As an alternative, the Ashtead Park Garden Centre now offers members a 10% discount on plants. To receive this discount members must show a current membership card at the tills.

The centre offers quality bedding plants, fruit trees, bulbs, flowers, seeds, seedlings, trees and shrubs, sourced locally and hand selected from nurseries whenever possible.

This independent family run business is located just off the A24 between Epsom and Ashtead on Pleasure Pit Road. For a map and directions and more information please visit their website by clicking here

Newsletters on our activities are sent to members 4 times per year.

Our AGM is held in March. The minutes of the 2018 AGM were approved in 2019 and can downloaded here . The draft minutes of the 2019 AGM can be downloaded here.
