RHS Malvern Spring Show

Cotswold Life - - INSIDE -

The RHS Malvern Spring Fes­ti­val is now firmly es­tab­lished as one of the big­gest and most pres­ti­gious of gar­den­ing shows. The early May show, at the Three Coun­ties Show­ground, is called A Cel­e­bra­tion of Gar­den­ing, and the fine Spring weather made for per­fect con­di­tions for the plants and beau­ti­ful show gar­dens, which were awarded a record five gold medals this year. As a ma­jor event in the Cotswold ‘sea­son’, it at­tracted thou­sands of visi­tors, and nu­mer­ous celebri­ties in­clud­ing Blue Peter star Va­lerie Sin­gle­ton, Masterchef pre­sen­ter John Torode, and of course gar­den­ers such as Chris Beard­shaw, Alys Fowler, Carol Klein, Joe Swift and Jekka Mcvicar.

This glo­ri­ous show just gets big­ger and bet­ter.
