We are thought to be the oldest fuchsia Group affiliated to the  British Fuchsia Society.  Founded in 1963 the Group celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013. With monthly meetings, an annual show, talks and demonstrations our aim is to enthuse everyone about Fuchsias, which are immensely popular throughout the UK .

Our lively and friendly meetings are held on the  first
 Wednesday of each month ( apart from Jan and Aug) at  Squires GARDEN CENTRE EPSOM ROAD WEST HORSLEY Kt24 6ar  IN THE CAFE ANNEXE FROM 2.3O-4.30PM We have talks and demonstrations from many authoritative speakers on a wide variety of Fuchsia and horticulture related subjects, as well as talks  and cameo slots from our own members. New Members and Guests are always welcome. The annual membership fee is £20.and visitors are welcome at a charge of £3 per meeting.


The highlight of the year is undoubtedly our annual show.  This year it will held at Squires Garden Centre, Epsom Road, West Horsley, Surrey, KT24 6AR. The show runs over the weekend of Sat  21st & 22nd July.  . It is run broadly under British Fuchsia Society (BFS) rules and judged by British Fuchsia Society accredited national judges.. Entrance is free,.we look forward to meeting you there!
