RHS in £100million investment plan days before Hampton Court Flower Show

The hope is to find a garden in the Midlands or North West England that it can take over to create another regional wonderland – as it has done with Wisley in Surrey, Hyde Hall in Essex, Rosemoor in Devon and Harlow Carr in Yorkshire.

As for the inner-city oases, these would be part of the RHS’s increasing interest in urban gardening.

At the moment the RHS runs Secret Garden Sundays aimed at Londoners in Lindley Hall near its headquarters in Victoria.

Free to members or £5 on the door, this Sunday’s (July 6) event includes local food producers, florists, beekeepers and artists plus talks and workshops on flower arranging, foraging, garden mosaics and terrariums.

The RHS Horticultural Advisory team’s Growing Together Club will focus on microgreens and there will be a Magical Poetry Yurt where Paul Evans will read poems and talk about writing garden poetry.

Meanwhile, RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show starts next Tuesday (July 8) for a week of garden design heaven.
