The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) have announced that in June 2017 Chatsworth will be added to their annual shows programme. Sue Biggs, RHS Director General, said: “We’re thrilled that in 2017 we will be hosting an RHS Flower Show in partnership with Chatsworth on its breathtaking grounds. The amazing estate with its gorgeous surroundings has a rich gardening heritage and we’re honoured and excited to soon be a part of it.
Its overarching theme is ‘Design Revolutionaries’ and will celebrate both todays creative genius of garden designs and gardeners talent as well as the past, in particular Joseph Paxton who was once the estate gardener at Chatsworth.
Save the date: the first show will be held 7 – 11 June 2017
