Upcoming Flower Show

Flowers from the Kowhai Tree are depicted in the Brightwater Horticultural Society logoWelcome to the Brightwater Horticultural Society Incorporated’s website. We invite you to use this site to find out about the Society, its function and history as well as other general information and contact details.

 

The Society is over 110 years old and has a modest membership of about 40 people who meet around 8 times a year. As well as bringing together like-minded people to exchange ideas and share tips, tricks and achievements of a horticultural nature, the primary purpose of the Society is to organize and run the biannual Brightwater Flower Shows.

 

Held over 2 days at the Brightwater Hall, both the Spring and Summer Flower Shows are open to all. District Garden Clubs and Nelson Horticultural Society members are especially welcome to show their flowers. The show schedule also includes a section for school children and pre-school children.

 

Current affiliations include the National Daffodil Society of New Zealand and the National Dahlia Society of New Zealand.

 

As part of the Societies commitment to the local Brightwater community, regular donations are made to the Brightwater School and Brightwater Volunteer Fire Brigade.
