Highlights of the 2017 Show

The RHS Harvest Festival Show celebrated with the Giant Pumpkin and Autumn Fruit and Vegetable competitions. The show was free to attend and had a wealth of information on growing, harvesting and using garden produce, along with apples and chillies to taste and buy - and if visitors had a query, the Wisley experts on hand helped to identify their fruit.

Heaviest Apple Competition

Open to all and free to enter, visitors brought their biggest home-grown apples along to the show and joined the weigh-in at the RHS Fruit Group stand. The competition ran until 2pm on Wednesday 4 Oct when the winner was announced.


From 2017, as part of the RHS’ commitment to growing the next generation of gardeners, shows held in one hall, such as the RHS Harvest Festival Show, will be free to RHS members and the public. Shows held in two 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.*
