Western Australian Horticultural Council

Since 1932, The Western Australian Horticultural Council has been promoting, encouraging and assisting the development of amateur horticulture in Western Australia.

We encourage, promote and sanction the formation of affiliated societies. Once established, members participate in the decisions of Council.

We support our affiliated societies by sponsoring and arranging two plant fairs a year enabling them to share their expertise and plants with members of the public.

We produce The Gardener’s Handbook to assist exhibitors, judges and societies in all aspects of horticultural competition. Affiliated members offer amendments and updates as they become available.

We allocate State and District Championships for competitive shows run by our members and provide sashes and certificate awards. Applications are considered at the February and November Council meetings.

We affiliate with kindred bodies that include Araluen Botanic Park Inc, Garden Clubs of Australia Inc & Royal Horticultural Society of Victoria Inc.

The web page is continually updated and provides a valuable resource to those seeking to join a club or society or wish to attend an event. The media is a frequent visitor to the site.
