What to Expect at the RHS Malvern Spring Flower Show
Now that we are well and truly into spring and summer is just around the corner, it’s that exciting time of year that most gardeners look forward to – flower show season! One of the first, and most enjoyable of the year, is the RHS Malvern Spring Flower Show, set to a backdrop of the beautiful Malvern Hills and filled with flowers, food and crafts for the whole family to enjoy.
This Year’s RHS Malvern Spring Flower Show Highlights
Whether you’re a frequent visitor to RHS flower shows or are planning to attend for the first time, this year’s RHS Malvern Spring Flower Show is one not to be missed. It’s a great day out and there’s a lot to see and do, regardless of your interests. So, what are some of the must-see parts of the show?
There are a number of plant exhibits at the flower show which highlight some of the season’s must-have plants, as well as offering advice and information from gardening experts. If you have a query about your own garden or are looking to introduce something new, there’ll be someone on hand to answer all your questions.
Year after year the show gardens continue to be one of the most popular parts of the flower show. A number of show gardens are created by top designers and they offer inspiration and ideas to help visitors transform their own gardens into something special. This year, a new Live Well zone will feature the first permanent garden, designed by Jekka McVicar. The garden is inspired by the need to reflect and escape, and the way garden design can help to enable that process of rest and relaxation.
A first for 2017, there will be a number of different spa gardens at the show. Spa gardens showcase the talents of new garden designers and provide something a little bit different. Look out for The Ocean Garden, inspired by Miami’s iconic art deco style, and Bubble Drops, which celebrates the essence of water.

The RHS Malvern Spring Flower Show is not just for adults; there are a number of activities that will keep the kids entertained too. There’s an area specifically dedicated to young gardeners and throughout Saturday and Sunday, a series of events will be held to get the involved with all things gardening.
