About The Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society

The Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society was established in 1809 by a group of seventeen Edinburgh worthies for ‘the encouragement and improvement of the best fruit, the most choice flowers and the most useful culinary vegetables’. Current members of the Society continue to share a common interest in gardens, gardening and horticulture.

As a registered Scottish Charity the Society seeks to promote, encourage and support a wide range of horticultural and gardening interests.
