RHS celebrate the shades of autumn

The Royal Horticultural Society is setting an example! Instead of shying away from the season commonly associated with the chill of winter, they are celebrating the spectacular change of colour that it brings. Yes the skies turn grey, but that is the only thing that does. Bland, green leaves are replaced by beautiful shades of red, yellow and orange and the world is injected with vibrancy only seen during this time of the year.

RHS London is hosting the ‘Shades of Autumn’ show in Lindley and Lawrence Halls, a celebration of autumn colour and seasonal interest plants. For the first time, the show will feature exhibits of botanical art alongside the RHS photography exhibit and an innovative new 3D printing exhibition.

The evolution of 3D printing has bought a whole new level of exterior designing to the show, with the UK’s leading garden designers such as Sarah Eberle, Jim Fogarty and Andy Sturgeon, exhibiting high quality miniature garden models.

In addition, the RHS Shades of Autumn Competition, which is open to all amateur growers, will present the pick of seasonal foliage and flowers from plantsmen across the UK. Have you entered this year?

This is sure to be a show that you need to see, with exhibits happening both today (10am-7pm) and tomorrow (10am-5pm). Entry is £5 in advance or £8 on the door.
