In the RHS Secret Garden – July 6th 2014

14ft Pink Sumptuous

Now that Summer has well and truly arrived , it is time to get outside and do those little jobs in the garden or you could visit the and have poetry read to you in a 14ft Yurt as you sample tasty local produce.

The RHS has developed their Secret Gardens Sundays to bring together a variety of events to get people growing, eating and celebrating the best of seasonal British produce in 2014.

Exhibitors vary each month but include local and independent food producers alongside florists, beekeepers and artists. There will also be live music, talks and demonstrations, and of course lots of food and drink to try.

The next Secret Garden will be on Sunday 6 July, and there really will be something for everyone .  There will be talks on garden design, tea growing, what it takes to be a young horticulturalist, foraging, and writing garden poetry.

There will be a 14ft ‘Magical Poetry in which Guardian columnist and poet Paul Evans will read poems from his new book ‘Herbaceous’.

There will also be a garden mosaics workshop from Southbank Mosaics, a terrariums workshop, a flower-arranging workshop and an interactive foraging stand.

In the Hall there are a number of exhibitors who will offer advice and workshops.

The RHS Horticultural Advisory team will be providing the Growing Together Club, this month visitors can learn how to grow their own microgreens so we’re catering for all kinds of gardeners, from beginners with balcony gardens to the more experienced.

Music will be provided by the Melange Collective – a trio of cello, guitar and percussion – playing a range of music from North Africa, the Middle East, the Balkans, Central Asia and South America

The Sundays run every month until September, with a special Christmas event in November.

RHS London Secret Garden Sunday takes  place between 10am  – 4 pm at RHS Lindley Hall, Vincent Square, London SW1P 2PE.
