The RHS is giving keen gardeners and beginners the chance to learn how to make the most of their Autumnal oasis with welcomes the return of its Autumn Garden Show from October 25 – 26, in the RHS Lindley and RHS Lawrence Horticultural Halls.
The event will showcase floral installations from the RHS Floral Artist in Residence 2017, Electric Daisy Flower Farm and an array of features from gold-medal winning designer Paul-Hervey Brookes.
