In RHS: A NATION IN BLOOM, Matthew Biggs uncovers the beating heart of the RHS, the nation’s largest gardening charity, as it leads a renaissance of interest and enthusiasm for all things horticultural.
In an exclusive event, hear Sue Biggs, Director General of the Royal Horticultural Society, and Matthew Biggs, gardening expert and regular BBC Gardeners’ Question Time panellist, discuss the new direction of the Royal Horticultural Society, how it aims to inspire us all to improve our lives, and to encourage gardeners for generations to come.
We may think we know the RHS through its stunning gardens, world-famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show, its prestigious awards and its libraries, science labs, magazines and website. But the society is in a process of subtle, sometimes radical evolution to become even more accessible and more relevant to the wider benefit of all gardeners today as well as to its half-a-million members.
Matthew Biggs is a well-known gardening expert and regular panellist on BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time and author of several books including RHS Lessons from the Great Gardeners and RHS Great British Village Show.
