RHS Garden Harlow Carr is encouraging its visitors to plant now for spring colour, and supporting local plant nurseries at its annual Autumn Plant Fair in conjunction with Plant Heritage on Sunday 7 September, 10am – 4pm.
Specialist nurseries from around the region will be setting up shop at the garden in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, selling a range of unusual plants and giving top growing tips to visitors.
Liz Thwaite, Head of Site at RHS Garden Harlow Carr, says: “The annual Autumn Plant Fair is always hugely popular, as people prepare their gardens for another year of colour and interest. Our own horticulturists will soon be planting thousands of spring bulbs ready for a spectacular season of blooms following winter’s departure.”
Experts from the RHS Advisory team will also be on hand across the whole weekend (6 – 7 September), ready to help with plant and disease identification, general advice and any other horticultural queries.

About the RHS
The Royal Horticultural Society was founded in 1804 by Sir Joseph Banks and John Wedgwood for the encouragement and improvement of the science, art and practice of horticulture. We held our first flower shows in 1820, were granted a Royal Charter in 1861 and acquired RHS Garden Wisley in 1903. From our first meetings in a small room off London’s Piccadilly, we have grown to become the world’s largest gardening charity.
Today the RHS is committed to providing a voice for all gardeners. We are driven by a simple love of plants and a belief that gardeners make the world a better place. 210 years on we continue to safeguard and advance the science, art and practice of horticulture, creating displays that inspire people to garden. In all aspects of our work we help gardeners develop by sharing our knowledge of plants, gardens and the environment.
RHS membership is for anyone with an interest in gardening. Support the RHS and secure a healthy future for gardening. For more information call: 0845 130 4646, or visit www.rhs.org.uk/join
