At the show this year, you can explore the RHS Edible Garden and witness artisan production methods first-hand - from hop pickers on stilts to the art of bee-keeping – displaying the very best in growing your own with almost every plant having an end (mainly edible) use. Other highlights include the stunning Conceptual Gardens and inspiring Poets' Gardens, dedicated to the works of Keats, Byron, Lewis Carroll, and other British literary greats. There will also be chance for shopping, dining and enjoying live music throughout the day.

Membership to the RHS will bring you days out at breathtakingly beautiful gardens and shows, one-to-one advice from RHS experts, as well as inspirational tips from a monthly magazine to help your garden flourish. Membership also allows access to the exclusive Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th members’ only days. For further information on the benefits of being an RHS member please click here
