RHS London Shades of Autumn Show

I mentioned the other day that the RHS has two London shows in October, the first was the harvest show, the second London show is the RHS London Shades of Autumn Show.

This year the RHS Shades of Autumn Show has had a make over, the RHS are working with Cityscapes, a London garden festival, to bring a show garden into the Lindley Hall . The Cloudy Bay Discovery Garden, which won a Silver Gilt medal at the 2013 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, is being rebuilt so that it can be enjoyed again. The show garden has already been a popular attraction this summer on the bank of the Thames, where it has been remixed four times by different designers in the courtyard of the Oxo Wharf Tower. It will have its final reincarnation at the RHS Shades of Autumn Show, recreated by its original designers Andrew Wilson and Gavin McWilliam. After the show the materials and plants will be donated to a community project.
Last years floral display
As well as the show garden a number of specialist nurseries are presenting floral displays, as well as the typical nursery displays and stands on exhibit in Lindley Hall.

The Autumn show tickets can be bought via the RHS site. If you are going to make a short break in London whilst attending the show then there are a number of Holiday Inn hotels which would make a good base for for the show and wider activities in London, for example Bloomsbury, Regents Park, Commercial Road or Brent Cross.



The show is held at the RHS Halls in Vincent Square, there are a number of Tube stations near by for easy access by public transport and an underground car park adjacent to the halls if you are travelling there by car.

Enjoy the show!
