Inspiring days out and so much more
In 2017 we celebrated botanical art and horticultural masterpieces from around the world
The RHS Lindley Hall hosted the RHS London Botanical Art Show, championing the skills of some of the world’s best botanical artists through a display of previously unseen work. It was a truly international Show featuring the work of artists from Italy, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea.

Further information on the exhibiting artists
As part of the RHS’ commitment to grow the next generation of gardeners, from 2017 shows held in one hall only, including the RHS Botanical Art Show, will be free to RHS members and the public (the Preview will be £5 in advance and on the day for both members and the public). Shows held in both RHS Horticultural Halls will have a small entry charge for members (£5) and the public (£6 advance, £9 on the day).
Funds from ticket sales will go towards helping to pay for RHS Apprentices, to kick-start and enable young people’s careers in horticulture. Find out how our 2017 London shows aim to achieve this.
The Show also featured an array of artists and botanical art organisations in our pop-up studio who ran live demonstrations and free workshops.

The Lindley Library also opened for visits during the Show, and featured our exhibition Pigments and Petals. Free curated tours of some the library’s collection ran at 11am and 2pm on each day of the Show.
The preview evening was a chance to have an early viewing of the Show, accompanied by live classical music and a complimentary drink. We were also delighted to present a preview screening of The Artist's Garden: American Impressionism, the latest release from the acclaimed series Exhibition on Screen, with a live introduction from director Phil Grabsky.
The film explored how the relationship between art and gardening blossomed across the pond, as Americans began to cultivate their own gardens, and a group of American painters returned from Europe keen to capture these new oases.
