RHS Show Season Springs into Life

Wednesday 20 November 2013

RHS London Plant and Design Show 21 – 22 February 2014

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) will kick-start the gardening season with the RHS London Plant and Design Show in February 2014. On Friday 21 and Saturday 22 February, the Lawrence and Lindley Halls in Westminster will once again play host to a wealth of early spring plants, advice and inspiration.

Fresh winter colour and early-flowering plants will be exhibited by the UK’s best nurserymen and growers, with an abundance of bulbs and plants to buy. Visitors can expect to see and buy contemporary garden products and many different snowdrops, hellebores and early spring bulbs including new plants and unusual cultivars.

Those interested in garden design can take advantage of experts from the Society of Garden Designers and get the latest advice for gardening projects. Visitors will also benefit from the ever-popular talks programme led by top garden designers, plus leading design colleges will be on hand to discuss their course options.

Tickets for RHS members went on sale on 1 November 2013, with public tickets available from 1 December. To buy tickets visit http://www.rhs.org.uk/Shows-Events

About RHS London Shows
The RHS London Flower Shows are the longest running of all the Society's flower shows. Established in 1862, they were first held at the RHS garden in Kensington but moved to the RHS Horticultural Halls when they were built in 1904 and have remained there ever since.

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. 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.
