Our inspirational 2017 autumn show offered innovative planting ideas to add late season colour and texture to your garden
The RHS Autumn Garden Show brought the delightful colours, textures and tastes of autumn to the city.
In the Indoor Foraging Forest by award-winning landscape designer Jon Davies, we featured an atmospheric world of unusual and seasonal edibles, from crab apples, herbs and Chilean guava to an array of fungi. The Autumnal Gateway (a ‘remix’ of the Path of Least Resistance installation from RHS Chatsworth Flower Show) featured an earthy tapestry of grasses, asters, dahlias and more against a geometric metal framework.
A spectacular showcase of seedheads was created by new floral exhibitor The Salutation Garden, with huge Allium schubertii taking centre stage, while Plant Heritage London featured displays of Callicarpa, corkscrew hazel, silken Miscanthus nepalensis, huge Cardiocrinum seedpods as well as other plants that make autumn such a wonderful time of year.
Visitors could treat themselves, or make a start on Christmas shopping, with plenty of tempting ideas from quality garden and indoor plants, terrariums, candles and hypertufa troughs to vintage vases and much more.

St John’s Smith Square Partnership
We also teamed up with our friends at St John's Smith Square concert hall to offer a combined entry ticket to the lunchtime organ recital by Henry Fairs (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire) and to the RHS Autumn Garden Show.
