The 2017 line-up
We have big plans for the 2017 RHS London Shows, offering visitors more to see and do. The funds from their ticket sales* will be invested in supporting our charitable aims such as helping future gardening apprentices. For 2017 the line-up is:
RHS Early Spring Plant Fair on 14 – 15 February
RHS Spring Plant and Orchid Show on 29 – 30 March
RHS Autumn Garden Show on 25 – 26 October
These shows, which will be held at both the RHS' Lindley and Lawrence Halls, will be ticketed events costing £5 for RHS members (in advance and on the day), and £6 for non-members (£9 on the day). The RHS is committed to growing the next generation of gardeners and, in line with this ambition, the funds from these tickets will help pay for RHS Apprentices, to enable young people to follow careers in horticulture.
In addition, we will be holding Late Events for all of the shows, and a Preview for the Botanical Art Show - entry will be £5 for all.
There will also be three smaller RHS Gardening Events, which RHS members and the public will be able to visit for free.
RHS Botanical Art Show on 24 – 25 February
RHS Summer Urban Garden Show on 12 – 13 July
RHS Harvest Festival Show on 3 – 4 October
The 2018 line-up

Sue Biggs, RHS Director General, says:
"We’re committed to continuing these very special shows, where some of the UK’s best nurseries create the most beautiful plant displays, which will showcase some of the best garden and garden art displays in the world."
"Funds raised from the tickets will go towards helping support our apprentices develop skills and create experience for a solid foundation for their careers and future. Our apprentices learn on courses; develop skills in our four RHS gardens and at our world famous shows and get the chance to do work experience at leading horticultural organisations."
*Please note: one-hall shows will be free to RHS members and the public,but two-hall shows will have a small entry charge for members (£5) and the public (£6 advance, £9 on day).
