About National Gardening Week 2014
National Gardening Week was launched by the RHS to get the nation growing.
National Gardening Week was launched three years ago by the RHS and since then has grown into the country’s biggest celebration of gardening. Thousands of people, gardens, charities, retailers, culture and heritage organisations and groups get involved and you can too. This year, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of RHS Britain in Bloom, the UK’s largest volunteering project, we’ve made the week all about communities. So whether you’re a complete novice or a green-fingered expert you can get involved and enjoy gardening and the green spaces, neighbourhoods and communities that benefit from it.
Join the celebrations
Events and activities are being run up and down the country. From beginner’s workshops to guided walks, face painting to garden parties, there’s something for everyone and everyone is invited. Find out what’s on.
Would you like to throw a garden party, love your neighbourhood park or think your local street could do with a tidy up? Well if so, you can get involved in National Gardening Week by running your own event and registering it with us online. No matter how big or small your idea, we’d love to have you involved.
Do something fun
There are plenty of things you can do yourself or with your family to get into the spirit of National Gardening Week. From building a pond, to making rhubarb jam.
