Coolings Horticultural Show 2017

A- | A+

Our Horticultural Show is now in it's 5th year and it's your chance to show us what you can do! 

Whether you want to enter something for yourself or just pop along and peruse the entries, this is always a fun, popular day at Coolings. We are also looking forward to welcoming the winner of the BBC The Big Allotment Challenge 2016, Rob Smith as he will be here for the day of the show for you all to meet (sponsored by Suttons Seeds).

 

It is your opportunity to see the best that Kent's Horticultural Societies have to offer in categories ranging from flowers, fruit and vegetables to cakes.

You may even want to enter something for yourself. Maybe you make a mean cake, have grown a prize winning marrow, are creative with flowers, have a keen eye for photography, or maybe you are crafty/enjoy painting - then enter your creations into the appropriate category.

We'd love to see them and you may even earn yourself a prize!

This year's show is on Saturday 30th September 2017 and will be open to the public from 12 noon, so if you have a love of gardening and want to peruse some of the best produce kent has to offer this is the perfect opportunity.
