RHS Harlow Carr Exhibition: Women in Horticulture

February 8th, 2018 | News | 0 Comments

RHS-Display-Women-in-HorticultureCelebrating a century of achievement, this fascinating display looks at the highlights of the careers of a series of talented women working in horticulture.

Discover this exhibition at the RHS Garden Harlow Carr, featuring women who are represented within RHS Libraries’ original art and photographic collections. They include information on Gertrude Jekyll, Ellen Wilmot, Marion Cran, Dorothy Martin and Constance Spry. As educators, scientists, artists, writers and gardeners these women have changed the way we garden and left behind an enduring legacy.

The exhibition is open Monday-Sunday from 11am-4pm.


Mr Fothergill’s is proud to have entered into a new partnership with The RHS to bring out a range of flower seeds and vegetable seeds for home gardeners.  The extensive flower seed range creates beautiful garden displays with excellent performance. Additionally they have been awarded RHS’s perfect for pollinators, as the best source of food for pollinating insects.  The vegetable collection, of 56 AGM varieties, includes excellent modern strains as well as much-loved, trusted favourites.

The RHS Award of Garden Merit is a mark of quality, awarded to garden plants with excellent garden performance. Each award is given only after a trial at an RHS Garden and judge by a team of experts.
