Have a Hoppy Easter at the RHS Gardens

Wednesday 18 March 2015

Enjoy Easter events with us throughout the holidays, 28 March – 12 April

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has teamed up with Lindt to bring the Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt to RHS Gardens this Easter holidays from 28 March – 12 April.

Throughout the Easter holidays free activities are available every day that will get the whole family out and about at the spectacular RHS Gardens in Devon, Essex, North Yorkshire and Surrey.

Families can follow the clues around the gardens to find the Lindt Easter Bunny and pick up a chocolate prize. Children up for a challenge can also take part in the Lindt Golden Carrot Competition and guess where the special Lindt Golden Carrot is hidden in the garden to win Lindt Easter treats.

There will also be many other free activities throughout the Easter Holidays including storytelling (8, 9, 15 & 16 April, RHS Gardens Harlow Carr), make your own mini willow Easter baskets (2 April, RHS Gardens Rosemoor), create your own Easter bunny bonnet (4 & 5 April, RHS Gardens Wisley) and daily sow-and-grow classes ( 28 March – 12 April, RHS Gardens Hyde Hall).

With a wide range of exciting activities running every day at all four RHS Gardens, a day out at one of our gardens is the perfect way to keep the whole family entertained this Easter.

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, the first of our gardens, 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. 211 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.
