Ultimate Gardening

Fresh for 2017, RHS Malvern Spring Festival is taking inspiration from Malvern’s heyday as a fashionable spa resort, as Head of Show, Jane Furze, explains.

This year's celebration of the start of the gardening season includes lots that's new. Visitors often make a bee-line for the Floral Marquee so we’re proud to present our biggest ever display from the finest specialist nurseries across the country. Measuring the equivalent length of almost four Olympic swimming pools, it will be home to 69 leading growers setting the horticultural standard at the start of the year. It’s the very first opportunity to get your hands on brand new varieties. Plus BBC Gardeners’ World presenter, Joe Swift, will be unveiling a unique centerpiece - the Plant Finder Parlour - bringing to life exotic stories of discovery.


British Queen of Herbs, Jekka McVicar, is designing the first ever specially commissioned permanent garden in our new Live Well zone, which brings to life the contribution horticulture makes to our health and wellbeing in today’s bustling world.


We’ve also introduced a new show garden category, Spa Gardens, which gives fledgling designers the platform to showcase their talents.


And this is all on top of the traditional favourites including superb plant and shopping arcades, live music, demonstrations, arts and crafts, and the lively Food & Drink Pavilion which offers a range of artisan products with lots of samples and a cookery kitchen. We promise a packed day of inspiration, education and entertainment for all the family and the chance to enjoy the company of A-list gardening guests including Alan Titchmarsh and Monty Don.
