2012 RHS London Shows…Diary Dates for 2012

RHS London Plant and Design Show
Kick-starting the flower show year with winter colour and early, spring-flowering plants, the UK’s best nurserymen and growers will gather in RHS Lawrence Hall to showcase spectacular floral displays. Exhibitors include multi-RHS Gold medal winners Jacques Armand and Avon Bulbs. Plants are available to buy.
Making the most of small outdoor spaces is a major theme of the show, and two of the 2011 RHS Young Designer of the Year finalists, Alexandra Froggatt (above sketch) and Owen Morgan, will stage show gardens demonstrating how you can transform a neglected, unloved alleyway into a beautiful green oasis.
RHS Horticultural Halls, Greycoat Street, London, SW1P 2PE

RHS London Orchid and Botanical Art Show
Specialist growers from across the globe will be exhibiting a spectacular array of exotic and hardy orchids to highlight the importance of orchid conservation in the wild. Some of the orchids are so rare they have not been seen in this country before. Visitors can ask growers about their extraordinary history, wonder at their unique beauty and buy from a vast collection of orchids.
Exhibitors include The Orchid Society of Great Britain, Eric Young Orchid Foundation and the Writhlington School Orchid Project, all of whom are dedicated to the conservation of this mysterious plant.
