17 - 19 Apr RHS Flower Show Cardiff 2020
The RHS Flower Show Cardiff is one of the key flower shows in the UK and it gives opportunity for growers and nurseries to dazzle with their best crops and ornamental prowess in an impactful program. The flower show has had a short history with the first ever edition taking place in 2005, but it has quickly asserted itself as a prime marketplace to conduct business and exchange secrets and expertise. The parklands fill with the full botanical spectrum as visitors will have a breadth of seedlings, seeds, plants, flowers, flower pots, trees, shrubs, garden tools, flower beds, pottery, paving stones, florist supplies, dried flowers and fertilizers to choose from. The RHS Flower Show Cardiff is not just a place to buy your supplies and network, but also a platform to learn more about plant care and how to go about planting specific species.
The RHS Show Cardiff is an annual flower show, which arrives just as spring is in full bloom as editions take place in the middle of April. The location is, of course, the historic parklands of the Cardiff Castle, which has long had connection to horticulture. Editions run for three days in total from 10:00 am in the morning until 17:00 pm in the afternoon. Doors are open to both professionals in the industry as well as the general public, which enjoys the flower installations. The flower show is a production of the Royal Horticultural Society. Cardiff Castle is centrally located within Cardiff and can easily be reached on foot or on bike. The main train station sits 10 minutes away on foot and there are bus connections to the castle grounds, so there are always ways to get there on time.
