A celebration of England’s favourite flower
For the second year running the RHS Lawrence Hall, London, was the venue for the RHS London Rose Show 2016. Show goers came and celebrated England’s favourite flower and supported specialist rose growers and florists. They had the chance to admire stunning rose displays, gain advice and tips on how to grow and take care of roses, and learn about different varieties.
This year, we are delighted that TV gardener and rose enthusiast Rachel de Thame co-curated the show. As a gardener with a passion for roses, Rachel worked alongside the RHS to make sure that this year's show was a bumper celebration of the nation's favourite flower.
Rachel was present for the duration of the show to meet and share her passion with our visitors. With many of the UK's premier rose growers participating, the hall was filled with the colour and fragrance of roses.
There were lots of opportunities over the two days to buy top-quality plants and get advice from the experts. In addition, there was a great line-up of expert speakers, floristry and flower arranging demonstrations and workshops, plus rose-related tools, products and much, much more.
