RHS Autumn Garden Show heralds return of colourful season

To mark the arrival of the colourful autumn season, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is welcoming the return of its Autumn Garden Show from Wednesday 25th to Thursday 26th October at the RHS Lindley and RHS Lawrence Horticultural Halls, London.

Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in a harvest haven that will celebrate the warming shades and textures of autumn with a visual feast, as well as discovering how keen gardeners can make the most of the season.

The show provides passionate city gardeners and beginners alike with a wealth of inspiration to create their own autumnal oasis. There will be stunning floral installations from the RHS Floral Artist in Residence 2017, Electric Daisy Flower Farm. Plus, there will be a celebration of seedheads and other enchanting features from gold-medal winning designer Paul Hervey-Brookes and a ‘remix’ of the Path of Least Resistance Freeform installation that appeared at the inaugural RHS Chatsworth earlier this year.

Foodies can indulge in an indoor foraging forest installation full of unusual edibles and foraging tours will also tempt guests with a menu of autumnal fare. Visitors will also be able to get their hands dirty with seasonally focused workshops, from floral design, to autumn leaf-crafting and micro-green sowing.

There will also be plenty of shopping opportunities, with nurseries and exhibitors hand-picked to offer seasonally inspired collections of plants, bulbs and the new must-have home accessories.

Rare and unusual plants will be available from growers including The Botanic Nursery, Plantbase and Harperley Hall Farm Nurseries, while new floral stands include Calmazag Nursery, Strictly Daylillies and Ashwood Nurseries.

Other highlights include talks from renowned horticulturists and gardening presenters Anne Swithinbank,who will be discussing ‘Foraging from the Garden’ and Nick Bailey who will talk on ‘Unusual Edibles in the City,’

The 24th October sees a late event offering a sneak preview of the show. Delicious food and music is on offer and the evening will allow guests to sample the season’s treats and sip on a cocktail or two as the sun sets on another summer season.
