Fruit & Vegetable Group

The Fruit & Vegetable Group is a special interest group of the Victoria Horticultural Society dedicated to the cultivation and study of the fruits and vegetables it is possible to grow in the Greater Victoria area. Each meeting has a different focus but we always have lively round-circle discussions on what is happening in everyone’s garden this month. Our annual seed exchange gives members an opportunity to try new varieties. Plant swaps in spring are also fun. In the good weather months, we love to arrive a few minutes early to have a quick tour of the host’s garden. We all learn by doing and by sharing information with each other.

To participate in the F&V Group you must be a member of the VHS, but there are no further fees to join our subgroup.

As a VHS member, you will have access to plant identifications, plant selection and cultivation tips, as well as general expertise and inspiration from some of the most experienced gardeners in the Victoria area. You will be able to attend fascinating lectures on a variety of topics by invited guest speakers at our monthly meetings, not to mention useful workshops and other events scheduled throughout the year. We also have an extensive lending library. For more details regarding VHS membership, please see this link:
