The horticultural world was buzzing about the number of young designers who won medals at this year’s Chelsea, a show usually dominated by established names. So will the more spacious of RHS’s horticultural events follow the trend set by its grown-up sibling?
Hands-on inspiration is at the heart of the event, which opens its doors tomorrow, and in this crowd-free preview we get a glimpse of some of the exhibits including conceptual gardens themed around the seven deadly sins, a celebration of Australian flora, a garden inspired by a bird’s nest and a vegetable plot with sound-producing elements. For a horticultural show famous for having its roots bedded in reality, it’s pretty spectacular.
New series. Monty Don, Rachel de Thame and Joe Swift present the first of three programmes from the Royal Horticultural Society's annual event in south-west London, which features a celebration of 50 years of Britain in Bloom. The team begins with a preview of the show before the gates open tomorrow, with Monty taking a look around the newly planted kitchen garden and discovering what Henry VIII would have demanded for dinner. Joe gets a flavour of the large show gardens and Rachel reveals the winner of the coveted Rose of the Year title.
