IN 1804 THE BOTANIST and plant hunter Sir Joseph Banks and John Wedgewood, son of potter Josiah Wedgewood, set up a horticultural society to further the study of the botanical world. Some 200 years later the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is the UK’S leading gardening charity helping people to share their love of plants and to inspire the next generation of gardeners and botanists. Their annual programme of flower shows held across the country gather together the best in design and growing. Become a member of the RHS for access to the shows on the quieter members-only days and get free admission throughout the year to the charity’s gardens in Surrey, Essex, North Yorkshire and Devon.
