Bringing the gardeners, bakers and master crafters together in our community …

The Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society is one of the oldest continuous running societies of its kind. We are a dedicated team of passionate enthusiasts who strive to improve and promote the Society in the Community. Over the last 120 years the society has had six monarchs as Patron and we are thrilled that Her Majesty The Queen continues this tradition today.

We are delighted to announce our Hope and Happiness Project, supported by Berkeley Homes. The project is the first of its kind and rooted in ‘green therapy’, the proven study of the advantages of gardening to mental and physical wellbeing. By sowing, growing and displaying these seeds, which are due to flower in late-August, the result will be colourful flashes yellow to encourage social and community wellbeing.
