Flamborough Horticultural Society
The Flamborough Horticultural Society was founded in May 1939 and we look forward to celebrating our 80th birthday this May in 2019.
The mission of the Flamborough Horticultural Society is to encourage interest and involvement in horticulture through civic improvement, preservation, exhibitions, the distribution of plant materials and regular instruction pertaining to the theory and practice of horticulture.
After our birth, thirty-two years later in 1971, we chose the Geranium (Pelargonium) as our emblem and we proudly display our crest at the front of the room at each meeting.
