What to expect at the show

Celebrating all that spring has to offer, this event includes an amazing selection of spring plants, must-have gardening sundries, and a spectacular array of exotic, as well as hardy, orchids.

Exciting plants and essential exhibitors

The Lindley Hall features an abundance of orchid exhibitors to delight our visitors, and includes British orchid growers Laurence Hobbs Orchids Ltd and Burnham Nurseries. Show-goers will also able to attend a dedicated talks programme on Orchids.

The Lawrence Hall focusses on the finest spring plants, as well as a preview exhibit on this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. This will include information and take-home tips from all of the Chelsea gardens, as well as talks from the designers and live examples of the latest planting trends that you’ll see there (provided by Hortus Loci). There will also be a Show Garden feature from designer and RHS Council Member James Alexander-Sinclair, who will also be present to talk about all these elements of this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

The RHS Lindley Library will host daily afternoon tours of their latest exhibition Handle with Care: Preserving our Gardening Heritage at noon and 2pm on both days.

Preview Evening

Our late evening event on 5 April (5–9pm) offers a preview of the show, with drinks, food, music and free activities on offer.
