Christmas with the RHS

It was the season for magical walks, sparkling lights and festive treats for all the family – here were some of our 2023 highlights, events and activities

It was time to Glow!

In 2023, all five RHS Gardens – Wisley, Rosemoor, Harlow Carr, Hyde Hall and Bridgewater hosted fabulous Glow events and encouraged visitors to wrap up warm and get into the festive spirit with a magical illuminated walk around the gardens on the dedicated Glow trails.

We look forward to welcoming you back to your local RHS Garden in 2024.

Festive days out

With the festivities over for another year, the cold winter days still have lots to offer. Why note take time out to visit your local RHS Garden or RHS Partner Garden. It’s a wonderful way to re-energise and refresh, and as winter transforms the landscape, our gardens will truly inspire you with seasonal ideas.

In your garden

Make the most of the quieter winter months to keep on top of garden tasks. There’s still plenty to do and it’s worth braving the chill to prepare for the year ahead. A little planting now will give you a head start with colourful early spring displays.

Check our gardeners’ calendar of month-by-month jobs through late autumn and winter. From clearing up fallen leaves to protecting shrubs and bulb planting, we’ve got expert advice and videos on what to do and when.
