RHS Garden Rosemoor in Devon will be holding its very own Apple Day on 6 October, in celebration of the bountiful harvest expected this year at the garden and around the country. The Rosemoor Apple Day, now in its 20th year, makes for a fun day out for all the family with amazing apple displays, apple pressing and cookery demonstrations, guided walks, children’s activities and plenty of opportunities to taste and buy local varieties of apples, cider and juice.
Food champion and local personality ‘Dan The Fish Man’ from Clovelly will be on hand with his exciting and unusual apple & cider recipes and RHS experts will be identifying apples brought in by visitors and giving out advice. Those interested in sampling more of the local produce can come along to Rosmoor’s Garden Kitchen Restaurant, which was recently recognised as Best Restaurant by the Garden Centres Association for the second year in a row. The restaurant is a proud supporter of local producers and much of its fresh fruit and vegetables are sourced from Rosemoor’s own Fruit & Vegetable Garden.
Apple Day is organised in conjunction with Orchards Live, Thornhayes Nursery and the RHS South West Area Fruit Group. For more information please visit rhs.org.uk/gardens/rosemoor/what-s-on or phone 01805 626800. Normal garden admission applies.

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, our flagship garden, 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. 209 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
