Visit the Japanese Gardens Exhibition at the Harrogate RHS garden

February 5th, 2018 | News | 0 Comments

The most northerly RHS garden in Harrogate is turning Japanese in the New Year as it hosts an exhibition telling the story of Japanese gardens and how their design and planting styles inspired the British to build Japanese-style gardens here in the UK. There will also be a display devoted to the ongoing restoration of the 1920’s Japanese-style garden in Harrogate’s nearby Valley Gardens.

A pop-up Japanese Shop will set up in the garden, selling authentic Japanese products and gifts throughout the exhibition and each weekend there’s a chance to try your hand at Japanese-inspired crafts such as calligraphy, origami, and the Chopstick Challenge under the expert guidance of Japanese tutors in traditional costume.

The exhibition takes place from 10am – 3pm daily until the 25 February.
