The RHS London Botanical Art and Photography Show will welcome a diverse and beautiful range of images and artworks of plants, trees and nature on display in the RHS Lindley Hall.

Artists from all over the world, including Italy, Japan and Hong Kong will present an array of exquisite works of art at the show, alongside the winners and finalists of the RHS Photographic Competition.

The RHS Photographic Competition features entries ranging from studies of tree species to close-ups of flowers across 9 different categories. The Portfolio category of the competition will see hopefuls put together a set of 6 images with a theme or story in the hope of achieving an RHS Gold medal.

A list of artists and photographers exhibiting at the show will be available soon. Our café will be open both days serving lunch, snacks and hot drinks.

During the show, there will be a curator’s introduction to the RHS Lindley Library's current exhibition Enduring Beauty (16 March–12 June), containing a spectacular display of recent RHS orchid portraits. There will also be a behind-the-scenes tour of the library’s botanical art collection (free, at 1pm and 3pm on both days – spaces are limited and you can sign up for these at the show).
