Wedgwood and the RHS

Our partnership

The union of Wedgwood and the RHS is the coming together of two British icons that not only share the same past, but also that share a similar vision for the future: to enrich peoples’ lives by celebrating nature, championing sustainability and creating healthier and happier communities.

John Wedgwood first came up with the idea of the RHS, suggesting a horticultural society in a letter to William Forsyth, George III’s head gardener - little did he know how far reaching his idea would become. Wedgwood is an ideal fit for the RHS, and historic links have been re-established through this important and exciting partnership.

Wedgwood Water Lily

Wedgwood was founded in 1759 by Josiah Wedgwood, who was not only a craftsman and potter but also a pioneer, philanthropist and marketer. With its rich heritage of over 250 years, Wedgwood has become a British icon and is a testament to entrepreneurial spirit and craftsmanship. With product and design development continuing in the UK, Wedgwood guarantees premium British lifestyle.
