National Gardening Week

From 29 April–5 May 2024, join us as we demystify the wonderful world of gardening

What’s taking place for National Gardening Week 2024?

The theme for National Gardening Week in 2024 is ‘Knowledge is Flower.’ All week, experts at the RHS will be on hand myth-busting, debunking and demystifying the wonderful world of gardening.

From how to avoid common pitfalls with your plants, to dig or not to dig, fertilise or not fertilise and whether vinegar makes good weedkiller – the RHS has it covered.

Share your tips and myths

Drawing upon our world-class expertise and scientific research, the RHS will help empower all gardeners, whether amateur or more established, with their plants and flowers. During National Gardening Week, join in with your own RHS Big Seed Sow journey and learn how to sow and grow your own seeds. There will also be a host of experts, friends and show-class growers sharing their top tips and myths.

Demystify your garden

What is National Gardening Week?

Ever since the first celebration in 2012, this annual event has grown in popularity. Each year National Gardening Week (NGW) sees thousands of people sharing their love of gardening, hosting events and talking about what they’re growing on social media.

The week also raises awareness of the difference that gardens and gardening can make to the lives of everyone in the UK. It helps to inspire more people, particularly the next generation of gardeners, to experience the joy of growing and creating beautiful green spaces.
