According to the RHS, the show will be very different as it’s designed for those who live in cities with limited or no outdoor growing space. The RHS aims to transform Manchester’s historic former railway station, Depot Mayfield, into an urban grower’s paradise full of small space gardening inspiration to encourage and inspire city dwellers to grow plants for both their indoor and outside spaces.

Helena Pettit, Director of Gardens & Shows said “With over 80% of the UK population living in towns and cities, the new show will enable more urban dwellers to garden, especially where access to green spaces can be limited.”
As part of the RHS strategy to 2030 launched earlier this year, one priority is to open up gardening for anyone, anywhere and the new RHS Urban Show is one of the ways in which the RHS hopes to do this.
