UK: RHS hosting indoor ‘urban’ garden show in Manchester city center

One of Manchester’s most historic industrial spaces is set to play host to the RHS’s first-ever indoor gardening show next year. Depot Mayfield has lived countless lives throughout the decades, but for four days next year, it’s set to be transformed into “an urban grower’s paradise” as the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has announced plans to hold a brand-new ‘Urban Show’ for the first time ever.

Manchester‘s former railway station will be filled with small-space gardening inspiration to “encourage and inspire” city residents to grow plants for both indoor and outdoor areas.

Expected to be ‘very different’ to the RHS’s current roster of Flower Shows that are hosted annually all across the UK, the RHS Urban Show in Manchester will take inspiration from its industrial indoor city center location by showcasing a range of ‘immersive experiences’ designed for those who live in cities with limited or no outdoor growing space.

While urban growing will be at the heart of the show, according to the RHS, the influence that horticulture has on interior design, art, wellness, and sustainability is also set to be explored over the four-day event.
