Due to the corona risk, the Royal Horticultural Society is cancelling all shows and events in April and May, including the world famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The RHS has stated on Tuesday 17 March that they adhere and follow UK government advice and guidelines. The government is no longer supporting mass gathering events. Last Monday UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson added and adviced to avoid all pubs, clubs and restaurants.

All RHS shows, events and school visits are cancelled until 30 June 2020. The RHS Gardens in Wisley remain open, with a number of increased precautionary measures in place.
