A fabulous day out bursting with colourful gardening inspiration, fun family activities, have-a-go workshops and boutique shopping.
Wednesday 20th to Sunday 24th July. 10am to 5pm.
Find an abundance of inspiration in our glorious gardens. See planet-friendly gardening ideas with the BBC Radio 2 and The One Show’s Sow, Show and Grow Garden, or head to the Greener Front Gardens for creative ways to turn uninspiring spaces into uplifting and sustainable plots.
Stock up on ideas to beautify your borders with the cleverly designed and accessible Greener Borders and see how gardening benefits our mental, physical and social wellbeing with the RHS Vitamin G Garden.
Get gardening and floral know-how from our experts, see mouth-watering demos from culinary pros, and take part in hands-on workshops. Hear from the ‘Twitter king of big veg’ Gerald Stratford, be inspired by broadcaster Arit Anderson and see the Mancunian winner of BBC Two’s Great British Menu, Adam Reid, cook up a storm.
Seed-sowing and herb-planting workshops can be found in the Homestead area, and over the weekend head to Earth’s Riches for insightful demonstrations exploring the wonders of soil and compost.
Surround yourself in beautiful blooms and shop from some of the UK’s finest growers at the Plant Village and Floral Marquee. Immerse yourself in a floral forest at the Flower School where expert florists will also be showing how you can create your own fabulous displays at home.
From the Wednesday to the Friday be inspired to grow-your-own with the Summer Fruit & Veg Competition displaying the finest locally-grown produce.
The whole family will find something to delight in. Little ones can take part in tree-mendous activities, collect seeds to grow at home and take part in hands-on workshops.
Fascinating talks about the benefits of herbs, the wonders of compost and the mysteries of the night sky promise to entertain older children and adults too.
