Opis

This provides access to all areas in front of and behind the scenes of the world's favourite gardening charity. From the society's aristocratic 19th-century beginnings to its four show-piece British gardens today (and a fifth one in the making), from the global success of more than 20 garden shows such as Chelsea Flower Show and Hampton Court, from the campaigning for more and better gardening at schools and in neighbourhoods, to its promotion of best practice, from its plant science and plant trials to providing some of the most popular visitor experiences in the UK. The RHS spans all horticultural activity and is a force for good in our lives.
