     The Louisiana State Horticulture Society [LSHS] celebrates the uniqueness of horticulture in Louisiana.  It is a group of  professionals and amateurs, who are united by a common interest in horticulture and fine gardening. As a group, we share knowledge, ideas, and plants. 

     We promote good gardening and horticultural practices that help the environment and beauty of the State.  LSHS is a statewide organization comprised of individuals who are involved in growing plants, creating gardens, developing landscapes, and in general beautifying our yards, gardens, parks, and all of Louisiana.

     We invite you to join us. You'll find us to be friendly people who love to be helpful and share gardening ideas, tips, plants, and stories. We hold a annual educational meeting, bring in noted speakers for our lectures, conduct a silent auction and conduct horticulture tours. We have fund raising activities to provide money for education, scholarships and programs sponsored by LSHS.  As a member of LSHS, you will receive the LSHS Newsletter and the LSHS Journal.

     Join us as we:  Foster and stimulate horticultural interest in Louisiana.  Promote fine gardening and share knowledge of growing vegetables, fruits, flowers, trees, shrubs, and ground covers.  Explore and learn about the very best plants for our Louisiana climate.
