Original art works and crafts for all ages on show in the garden
Browse unusual handmade gifts at RHS Garden Harlow Carr
RHS Garden Harlow Carr is flexing its artistic muscles for the Mothering Sunday weekend this year with a choice of art and craft for all ages.
On Saturday 14 March (11am – 3pm), youngsters can have fun planting daffodils in metal plant pots, which they can then decorate and take home. Each child and their mum will be given a small chocolate treat.
For the grown-ups, the Weekend Art Fair on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 March (10am – 4pm) will be a showcase for affordable, original artwork from local artists. There will also be the chance to buy a handmade gift for mum at the Handbags and Gladrags Exhibition running in the garden’s historic Bath House. The exhibition features work by 35 local craftspeople including jewellery, handbags, toiletries and clothing.

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.
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
