The Blackhall Horticultural Society, which was formed in 1952, meets at Blackhall St. Columba's Church, Edinburgh. We are a group of amateurs who all wish to learn that little bit more, and locally we are known as 'the horti'. We are the main gardening club in North West Edinburgh. Our activities include monthly meetings from September to May, an Annual Plant Sale in May, and a range of summer garden visits.
The Society is lead by our President, Steve Barton, who has been involved with 'the horti' for just under twenty years.
We have two Hon Presidents - William F. Murray SHM, who has been involved with 'the horti' for over fifty years as well as being a world renowned expert on Gladioli; and John MacLennan MCIHORT, who has been involved with 'the horti' over forty years and has a regular involvement with Keep Scotland Beautiful as a judge and assessor. Both Bill and John are experienced flower show judges. John is also involved with Royal Horticultural Society's School Gardening programme via The Green Plan It Challenge.
