From the 12th-13th April this year The Royal Horticultural Society will be hosting the RHS London Orchid & Botanical Art show, an exhibition that will display highly collectable orchids as well as international works of botanical art.
The show, to be held at the RHS Horticultural Halls, includes the opportunity to hear stories from those students involved in the well-known Writhlington School Orchid Project. The pupils recently set out on an expedition to Rwanda where they visited schools to aid them in learning about horticulture. Several key orchids of the Sikkim Himalaya will be incorporated in their exhibit.

David McLaughlin of the RHS described the show as ‘unique’ and and said it would give access ‘to a wide range of high-quality orchids that aren’t commonly available.’ Mr McLaughlin also pointed out that there will be ‘more challenging plants for sale as well as botanical art, so there’s something for everyone.’
With works from nearly 30 artists based around the world, the Orchid & Botanical Art Show will offer the chance for visitors to see and purchase orchids as well as work from renowned botanical artists.
