Our work

The North of England Horticultural Society (NEHS) is a leading gardening charity set up more than 100 years ago to support and promote horticulture across the north.

The society organises and runs the twice yearly Harrogate Flower Shows, widely regarded as the biggest and most prestigious independent shows in the gardening year.

The spring show (21 - 24 April 2022) takes place at the Great Yorkshire Showground and, in addition to welcoming the UK’s top plant nurseries, it showcases the ideas and inspiration of both established and up-and-coming garden designers. The event also features the work of hundreds of flower arrangers and florists in Britain's biggest exhibition of floral art. 

The autumn flower show (16 - 18 September 2022) is held at Newby hall & Gardens, near Ripon. Not only does it offer flower show favourites like our world-famous giant veg competition and an amazing array of autumn blooms grown by specialist societies, but it also includes access to Newby's award-winning gardens and spectacular floral installations in the stately home.
