Learn how to get more flavour from your fruit and veg
Learn how to grow for flavour in James’s new book
TV gardening expert, James Wong, will visit Harrogate on Sunday 19 April to offer tips and tricks to get the best flavour from home-grown fruit and vegetables.
The best-selling author and RHS Ambassador will be at RHS Garden Harlow Carr at 2pm to talk about his new book, Grow for Flavour, and explain how growing the best-tasting cultivars and treating them a bit meaner will not only result in crops with an intense flavour, but also cut down the work involved.
To book a place on James’s Grow for Flavour talk, call 020 3176 5830. Tickets cost £10 for RHS members and £20.95 for non-members. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and get books signed after the talk.

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
