RHS Bluewater shop open

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has opened its first standalone shop at Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent.


The first of its kind, RHS The Plant Space is designed to be a haven for all things houseplant. Building on the growing trend of indoor plants, particularly popular amongst the younger audiences, the aim is to make gardening more accessible to a bigger audience.

According to the RHS, the new venture will appeal to the novice as well as experienced gardeners. The shop will offer houseplants, plants care, as well as RHS lifestyle and homeware products. Fortnightly events, workshops and tutorials will be held in the shop.

Helena Pettit, Director of Shows and Gardens, says: “We’re very excited about the prospect of opening our RHS Plant Space at Bluewater and being able to bring plants and gardening to the millions of people who shop in this space, and to hopefully inspire in many of them a lasting passion and interest in gardening.”
