The RHS Flower Show Cardiff, supported by wealth manager Brewin Dolphin will return to the Welsh capital with a celebration of Spring from 12th–14th April in Bute Park.
The show will champion health and wellbeing and celebrate Visit Wales’ Year of Discovery theme for 2019 as it explores some of the finest in Welsh horticulture.
As a key show theme, features will highlight the benefits of gardening and outdoor spaces. The National Botanic Garden Wales’ Gardd Lles, meaning ‘Wellbeing Garden’ in Welsh, provides secluded seating areas for contemplation and mindfulness. Meanwhile, Grow Cardiff will also promote the benefits of community gardening with a vibrant display created by patients from the Grow Well project and local gardening group Billy’s Green Fingers.
Continuing the theme of community, a brand new Blossoming Beds Competition will offer community groups the chance to go head-to-head in creating colourful pockets of spring colour to inspire visitors. The ever-popular Wheelbarrow Competition also returns, inviting local schools to transform them into adventurous creations using the Discovery theme as inspiration.
British wildlife is also embraced with Into the Nest by The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, which features a design from a bird’s perspective as it explores a variety of games to help visitors identify some of Wales’ iconic bird species. RSPB Cymru will be back with snail-friendly Maenor Malwen, made up of shell-like curves and circles as families can discover UK land and hidden water snail species.
