RHS is calling on gardeners up and down the country to share their love of home-grown produce with this year's RHS theme – Edible Britain

National Gardening Week is the nation's biggest celebration of gardening and raises awareness of the difference that gardens and gardening can make to the lives of everyone in the UK. It inspires more people, particularly the next generation of gardeners, to experience the joy of growing and visiting beautiful green spaces. 

Edible Britain helps to highlight that everyone has space to grow something delicious to eat, whether it’s a single pot of herbs on the windowsill or an allotment overflowing with courgettes and potatoes.

"It’s clear that people are keen to reconnect with where their food comes from. We’re supporting this burgeoning interest by encouraging people, groups, societies, garden centres, nurseries and other organisations to showcase their edible expertise, and highlight all things grow-your-own."
