RHS Urban Garden Show offering inspiration for sprucing up indoors with nature

If you want to spruce up your interiors and stay connected with nature indoors, then head to the Royal Horticultural Society’s Urban Garden Show this weekend.

Expert growers from across the UK will be exhibiting and selling tropical houseplants, seasonal blooms and spring flowering bulbs.

This year’s events take place at RHS Lindley Hall and RHS Lawrence Hall in Westminster from 27-28 October.

Visitors interested in the more unusual will find a “UV Garden” filled with glowing blooms and florescent foliage created by garden designer Rob Stacewicz. There will also be evocative floral design from RHS resident floral artist Zita Elze, exploring urban sustainability, while floral designer Paul Malget will be working with RHS Wisley to create a breath-taking display of suspended foliage and autumn colour.

In addition, “aquascaping” expert George Farmer will display an emerging form of underwater gardening. He will also be running workshops where visitors can learn how to create their own submerged miniature landscapes using aquatic plants.

Other workshops taking place as part of the RHS Urban Garden Show include Soilless Growing Workshop by Rootlabs; Botanical Tie Dye Silk Workshop by London Permaculture; and Explore the Urban Trees of SW1 with the Museum of Walking.
