Celebrating spring in 2015
This year's vibrant celebration of spring saw the RHS Horticultural Halls bursting with nurseries and tradestands showing their spring wares. Visitors could stock up on plants and take-home tips and advice from the full programme of talks on spring flowers, given by the growers themselves. The theme of the show this year was English Gardens.

RHS Young Designer of the Year garden
In 2015, as part of the English Garden theme, the RHS Lindley Hall featured a front garden designed by the candidates for RHS Young Designer of the Year 2015, in order to highlight how important these spaces are – especially in our cities. The three designers, Josh Chapman, Kate Savill and Tamara Bridge, who all have stylish, quintessentially English Show Gardens at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park this year, joined together with mentor Paul Hervey-Brookes to create the garden.
Cultivation and Creativity
The RHS presented Cultivation and Creativity, a show from the Bankside Gallery which featured works depicting the four RHS Gardens as seen by Royal Watercolour Society artists. Works reflected the changing seasons and the life in the gardens, and the exhibition showed a range of artistic interpretations.

RHS Spring Fair Late
A late night garden party took place in the heart of the city at the RHS London Spring Fair Late – a plant fair with a difference, on Tuesday 14 April 2015. Visitors sipped handcrafted springtime cocktails, sampled delicious food, listened to live music, played lawn games, made corsages, and more. Seasonal cocktails from the Midnight Apothecary, scrumptious craft beer from The Real Ale Company and delicious food tantalised taste buds.
