ABOUT US

Warbleton & District Horticultural and Poultry Society (WDHPS) is a small, local, community organisation based in the village of Rushlake Green, Heathfield, East Sussex, we are more commonly known as the Rushlake Green Flower Show. It was established approximately ninety years ago to support and encourage an interest in horticultural and poultry activity whilst providing cheap sustainable food for families. We are affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society and membership is open to anyone for a small annual fee of £5.

The Society’s main activities are centred on two annual shows, local residents are encouraged to enter horticultural produce and handicrafts for judging – with some classes exclusive to juniors. Other smaller events take place throughout the year and are primarily focused on raising funds, interests and raising our profile. In recent years all activities have taken place either on the village green or in the local Dunn Memorial Hall.

The Society’s two main annual events are focused on competitive exhibits from members and the general public. A detailed schedule can be found on the Events page for each event, this will provide you with everything you need to know including the show rules, exhibit classes, award categories and entry forms.

We welcome advertising and sponsorship as these pay for our prize money and printing costs in order to keep our Show moving forward year on year.
