Get photographing colourful blooms

‘Show Us Your Shoots’ is an interactive social media initiative inviting you to take part and share photos and videos on your Instagram feeds of beautiful flowers, plants and trees that are special to you.

Make sure to tag @the_rhs and use the hashtag #ShowUsYourShoots to help spread the joy of gardening, the power of plants and the positive impact they can have on our lives at a time when millions of people are expected to be gardening.

“It’s nice when people take pictures of the plants they love, like plants that were given to you or a cutting that you’ve nurtured.”

Mary Berry, RHS Ambassador

Wondering what you can show to take part? The ‘Shoots’ can be anything meaningful, or even something you’ve seen that brings you joy. From a flower bursting through cracks in the pavement that make you feel determined to overcome adversity, to the tree on your street that brightens your walk to work, or even the spindly tomato plant you feel proud to have grown from seed to the colourful blooms in your garden that remind you of a loved one.

Let’s fill our feeds with flowers with #ShowUsYourShoots
