RHS Flower Show, Cardiff

Bright spring flowers in bloom

The Royal Horticultural Society holds flower shows across the country between April and October each year with spectacular floral displays and show gardens.

The first flower show of the season takes place in Bute Park, Cardiff between 17 and 19 April. This year is the 11th time the RHS Cardiff flower show has taken place and last year the show attracted more than 20, 000 visitors. There will be demonstrations, interactive features and visiting speakers, including BBC Presenter Toby Buckland.

The three themes for this year's show are:

  • Step into Spring
  • Simple Spaces: Amazing Places
  • Grow Together

Gardening and the weather

Keen gardeners will be keeping their fingers crossed for a dry and bright end to March and into April, so they can begin sowing seeds and preparing their gardens to be in full bloom this spring and summer. Check your local weather forecast before digging out the wellies, propagating trays and heading into the garden.

RHS Flower Show

Gardeners will be battling it out to win a prize for their displays. Last year Andrew Fisher and Dan Bowyer won Best Show Garden with 'A Woodland Garden'. Local schools will once again go head-to-head to win the annual wheelbarrow competition.

One of the Show Gardens this year is Made for Gardens: Nurture in Nature showing how it is possible to create a low maintenance family garden which is perfect for wildlife. There will also be features by the Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales and the RSPB.

If you are heading to the Show this year, check the Cardiff weather forecast to see whether you will need your brolly.
