Enjoying a sublime summer in the Gardens


What's happening at the Gardens

There's always something happening at the Gardens!  

Keep an eye on this page - we list all our events here, including family activities, live music and school holiday programmes.

If you want advice for your home garden, look out for our workshops, run by our garden staff and varying by season. From practical demonstrations (be ready to get your hands dirty) to curator-led walks and Q&A sessions - our gardeners provide expert advice on a range of topics.
