Famous for the beauty of gardens like Wisley, Rosemoor, and Harlow Carr and the splendor of shows like Chelsea and Hampton Court, it is a quintessentially British institution.Yet the RHS is about so much more than this and now, in a fascinating book to accompany a major BBC2 series, garden-lovers everywhere are given unique access to this august institution.

In a journey that takes us through the gardening year, Carolyn Fry introduces the reader to an exotic and colorful world full of passionate people and wonderful plants. It is a world that is steeped in horticultural history and tradition and yet in the 21st century is entering a new and exciting period of change and development.Lavishly illustrated with beautiful photographs, this book paints a vivid portrait of the RHS—the home of gardening excellence and obsession.
