Killearn Cottagers' Horticultural Society

Killearn Cottagers' Horticultural Society is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, number SC046701.

History

The Society was established in 1850 for "The encouragement of the art and practice of Gardening and Horticulture". Its affairs are managed by a President, a Chairman, a Secretary, a Treasurer and a committee, all of whom are elected annually at the General Meeting

Some floral exhibits in the 2018 showToday the Society has the same aim but achieves it in different ways. A fund raising Whist Drive and a Gardeners' Market combined with a Coffee Morning are held each year. The main event is the ever popular Annual Flower Show held on the last Saturday in August.
To help encourage entries a number of "how to do" help sheets have been produced and can be accessed by following the "Help Sheets" link, Help Sheets.

In 2020, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the Society could not hold the usual show, which attracts many attendees, but organised a "virtual" show to ensure continuity. It is hoped a real show can be held in 2021 but, if this is not possible, the virtual show format will be repeated.
