About Us

The London Gardens Society is a registered charity that has been established for over 100 years and its aim is “to make a permanent contribution towards beautifying London by the growing of flowers and shrubs thus improving the urban environment”.

 Originally the Society gave away free seeds to encourage the citizens of London to brighten up the areas where they lived and worked by growing flowers. This has now been replaced with an annual garden competition.

 In simple terms the role of the London Gardens Society is one for stimulating pride in London especially by the cultivation of flowers and home Gardens.

Why not join us as an individual member for only £15 a year?  You could win a cup or trophy and a gold, silver or bronze medal and certificate by entering the London Gardens Society’s All London Championship and be invited to the Guildhall to receive your award.

So if you or someone you know has a lovely front garden, back garden, window boxes, containers, hanging baskets, patio, roof, balcony or a garden display in a public area no matter how small, you too, could enter! Why not join us today?

 The competition also includes a class for commercial premises such as pubs and restaurants.
