We are open every Sunday from 10:00 until 12:30.
Benhill-Crescent Horticultural Society is an active not-for-profit society for allotment holders and gardeners, based at the Benhill Allotment site in Benhill Road, Sutton.
With origins going back to 1957, the society currently has approximately 250 members from around the borough and beyond.
Even if you’re not an allotment holder, you can become a member and take advantage of the great prices at the Trading Hut.
You can also be part of the many social events throughout the year, sharing expertise, time and fun with like-minded people. Most events are free and all members are welcome to attend.
Call in to the Trading Hut at Benhill Road on any Sunday morning to join.

Every year we select a charity to support.
Please note: that as our Shows and Social events were postponed in 2020 we have carried over fund raising for The Diamond Centre into 2021.
The Diamond Centre for Disabled Riders provides therapeutic riding and carriage driving for children and adults with disabilities.
As part of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), The Diamond Centre exists to provide disabled people with the opportunity to ride, carriage drive or vault at the level of their ability to benefit their health and well being.

Each entry will be laid out on a tray, noting weight and number of potatoes.
The “Gordon Bennett” Trophy is awarded to the grower of the greatest total weight of potatoes grown from a single seed potato along with a BCHS voucher for £10. The smallest entry will win the ‘Tryarda Trophy’.
A different variety of seed potato is selected by the show committee each year.
Members can purchase as many entries as they wish from the Trading Hut from January.
All potatoes must be grown from the seed potato provided. (Potatoes grown from other varieties will be disqualified) in the plastic poly bag provided.
Growers can choose the growing medium and method
All entries must be brought to the weigh-in still in the poly bag as grown. (Tops can be removed.)
We will dispose of any entries not collected at the end of the event
