RHS Malvern Spring Festival

RHS Malvern Spring Festival

This year’s RHS Malvern Spring Festival has a definite sparkle: it’s taking its inspiration from Malvern Spa’s Victorian heydey as a fashionable health resort.

RHS Malvern Spring Festival

The second major show of the year, Malvern boasts a brand new category of show gardens for 2017. Spa Gardens showcases the work of up and coming designers, mentored by Chelsea Gold Medal winning designer Jo Thompson. And of course, there will be the usual impressive array of full-sized show gardens created by leading designers, all hoping to win the coveted title of ‘Best in Show’.

The show’s favourite features are set to be as popular as ever: the UK’s longest Floral Marquee, at over 195m, will boast more than 65 leading the UK and international nurseries. TV gardener Joe Swift is creating a new centrepiece to the Marquee with his ‘Plant Hunter Parlour’, featuring daily talks from award-winning nurseries.

In the Live Well Zone, herb specialist Jekka McVicar is designing a specially-commissioned permanent garden, bringing to life the role gardens play in our health and wellbeing. And if that wasn’t enough, there are cookery demonstrations, children's’ activities, school gardens and workshops. The show runs from Thursday 11th May until Sunday 14th May: for more details visit www.rhsmalvern.co.uk.
