Malvern has made a name for itself as a showcase for emerging talent in the Show GardensFestival Gardens & School Gardens. Launched in 2014 and aimed at novice gardeners, the Festival Gardens are already building an enviable reputation for innovation. Come and soak up the theatre generated by these 15 Gardens, conveniently located within the Festival Green supported by Worcester Bosch Group, and set off to great effect by the natural backdrop of the Malvern Hills.Inspired by RHS Chelsea Flower Show, RHS Malvern Spring Festival was the Royal Horticultural Society’s first regional show.
If plants are your passion, our Floral Marquee is heaven: as well as premium quality plants available to buy, you will find expert advice and inspiration for planting schemes.

Our programme of expert workshops will be available online at the beginning of April. Jim Buttress from the Great Allotment Challenge is with us on the Friday of RHS Malvern.

Celebrity Highlights

Festival favourite, James Alexander-Sinclair, hosts gardening and gastronomic royalty in the Festival Theatre supported by the Heritage Horticultural Skills Scheme. Since our name change from Malvern Spring Gardening Show to RHS Malvern Spring Festival last year, James has referred to Malvern as ‘the Glastonbury of Gardening’. The difference being that whilst there are plenty of places to buy wellies (and other garden necessities), you won’t need them on your feet at our home, the Three Counties Showground in Malvern.  
Throughout the festival expert advice and demonstrations are available from our line-up of celebrities, start to plan your day now.

Not only will you find artisan produce to take home with your exquisite plants, but you will enjoy celebrity features from our all time favourite Frenchman, Raymond Blanc (Thursday only, in association with The English Garden Magazine) along with MasterChef favourite Gregg Wallace (Saturday). In the Food & Drink Pavilion, local hero, Rob Rees MBE, aka The Cotswold Chef will be leading demonstrations in the Festival Kitchen for the full four days.


The Festival is the place to find garden and home products and gifts that are 'different', from secateurs to pashminas there's something for everyone!
