ABOUT US

Killearn is an attractive village nestling near the northwestern end of the Campsie Fells, 17 miles north of Glasgow. 

 

Our Horticultural Society is more than 150 years old and we hold an Annual Show every August.  


We also organise plant sales and fundraising events.

Our 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.
 

We aim to promote interest, knowledge and skills in the practice of horticulture and crafts amongst the public, in particular in Killeam and the nearby Strathendrick villages.

 

We support local voluntary and charitable organisations which contribute to the development or wellbeing of the local community.

Our main event is the Annual Show.

We hold fundraising events, including an annual Whist Drive and an annual Gardeners' Market combined with a Coffee Morning.

We also run a summer annual coach outing to places with interesting gardens, such as Glamis Castle.
