Gardening for everyone is the focus of RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2023.

Helping to make gardening and horticulture accessible to all, the show will encourage planet-friendly practices, while showcasing the latest horticultural trends.

The four-day gardening extravaganza held at the Three Counties Showground will launch the RHS 2023 show season from Thursday 11 to Sunday 14 May 2023, with a whole host of new thematic zones, theatres, immersive experiences and interactive demonstrations.

A new fire and smoke theatre will offer alfresco cooking tips during live demonstrations from chefs and food producers.

There'll also be a brand-new tips and tricks zone to help visitors learn how to upcycle or reuse items to create practical and attractive pieces for their own garden.

Also new for 2023 will be a bloom and grow area, including an allotment garden with experts dishing out advice about growing salad, herbs and vegetables at home.

There will be plenty of family fun in a discovery dome with arts and crafts sessions, science-based activities, workshops and entertainment.

Usual favourites will also return, including more than 50 nurseries in the RHS floral marquee, alongside the plant village and pavilions, to stock up on British grown plants in flower and bulbs from some of the best nurseries around the UK.

Show gardens and experiential feature gardens will provide plenty of inspiration and ever-popular school gardens will return once again in 2023, with the theme ‘bring your favourite book to life’, inspiring children to connect creatively and sustainably with nature.

There will also be numerous artisan food producers across the showground, exhibiting some of the best food and drink that Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire have to offer, complemented by international cuisines.

Tickets for the RHS Malvern Spring Festival 2023 start from £25 and can be purchased via rhsmalvern.co.uk.
