Win a Renault at RHS gardens

The Renault Eco Key Quest - winner announced

RHS member John Lomax from Milnthorpe in Cumbria is the winner of a brand new car, as part of a summer competition run by the RHS.

To celebrate RHS Garden Rosemoor's 21st anniversary, the RHS ran a fun competition to win the 'key to the door' of a brand new Renault Modus. During the summer, adventure trails took place at each of the four RHS Gardens with thousands of visitors participating.

One winner was picked from the correct entries at each RHS Garden; and they were invited to take part in a grand finale held at RHS Garden Rosemoor on the August bank holiday weekend. After a series of challenges the group were served a generous lunch by the Rosemoor catering team.

After much anticipation one of the two finalists, RHS member John Lomax, picked the key from the flower pot which opened the Renault Modus on display. Mr Lomax and runners up all left with a trug full of useful gardening sundries - so no one went away empty handed.

Mr Lomax commented that on the 'warmth, generosity of spirit, exceptional hospitality and detailed thoughtful planning that the RHS had evidently invested in the event'.

Family fun at RHS Wisley

The stunning gardens at RHS Garden Wisley, Harlow Carr, Hyde Hall and Rosemoor provide the perfect place to relax. We have a packed events programme - check out the latest for your visit to one of our RHS gardens.

RHS - committed to the environment

From now on visitors to RHS Garden Wisley will be able to charge their electric car for free at one of four charge points that have been installed by ChargeMaster in the main car park (Car Park 1, Lane 3). Customers pay a £5 refundable deposit at the garden entrance for a card which starts the charge point. The charge point will be operational during normal garden opening times.

The Modus is all about being green, safe, spacious, adaptable, practical and comfortable - a stylish, and environmentally responsible choice in today’s modern car market.
