RHS Malvern Spring Show
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.
