Plants are at the heart of RHS Shows, with the world-famous Floral Marquees and RHS London Shows offering nurseries the chance to sell to gardening-focused visitors and also to gain coveted RHS medals for spectacular displays.
The Plant Villages (RHS Flower Show Cardiff, RHS Malvern Spring Festival, RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and RHS Flower Show Tatton Park) offer a farmers' market-style layout and provides the perfect opportunity to sell plants creatively. RHS Show visitors are keen to learn; we encourage Specialist Societies, Associations, Colleges and other organisations with a strong horticultural message to exhibit. Opportunities for each of these shows differ. Floristry and Floral Design are also important features at many RHS Shows.
RHS horticultural competitions are free to enter and different classes run throughout the year across our RHS gardens.
The benefits of exhibiting include:
- The opportunity to sell plants and share your passion for plants with hands-on gardeners
- Exposure and promotion of your nursery via our Show Guides, online media and websites
- The chance to be awarded a prestigious RHS Medal and prize money in the RHS Floral Marquee
- The chance to win prize money for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd best exhibits in the Plant Village
- Networking with fellow nurserymen, potential clients and industry experts
- Exposure and promotion of organisations and companies involved via extensive press and media coverage
- Sponsor names in the RHS Show Guides (circulation circa 108, 000 across all shows)
- Hospitality and entertainment options
Take part in RHS Shows and share your passion for plants with visitors at the RHS world-class events.
