Huntsville Horticultural Society

District 18

About Us

Welcome to the Huntsville Horticultural Society's website.

The Huntsville Horticultural Society was founded in 1925 and is a non-profit organization made up entirely of volunteers. Our goal is to promote Horticulture in the Town of Huntsville.

Anyone can join by paying a yearly membership fee. We are open to all age groups and have an active Junior Horticultural Society. Members enjoy a discount at some of our local Garden Centres.

We hold monthly general meetings that feature speakers, demonstrations or workshops. We also offer a yearly Plant Sale, Flower Shows and Garden Tour.

We actively participate in the beautification of Huntsville. We are responsible for purchasing and planting the flowers for 8 raised beds, 14 planters and 3 gardens in the Downtown of Huntsville. In the fall we remove all of these annuals in preparation for winter. The Society is also entirely responsible for maintaining the garden at the Huntsville Public Library. In recent years, we have helped the Parks Department maintain the Veteran's Memorial Garden & plant the gardens at the Brunel Locks and the Summit Flag Garden.
