About the Royal Horticultural Society
The Royal Horticultural Society was founded in 1800 by John Wedgewood, with the purpose of organising small gatherings so that horticultural fanatics could share findings, article and research on their horticultural activities, to encourage discussion and publishing. It took four years to organise the first meeting, which was attended by several well known characters in society at the time such as the Superintendent of the gardens of St. James's Palace and Kensington Palace.
It is today the United Kingdom's largest leading gardening charity, with a central emphasis on spreading and encouraging horticulture in the development of its science, art and practise. The field of horticulture focuses on a certain division of agriculture, which devotes its work to the technology, the study, the business, and also the artistic side of growing plants. Horticulture is promoted by this charity through unique flower shows such as the Chelsea Flower Show, Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, Tatton Park Flower Show and Cardiff Flower Show. In addition to sharing the creative employment of nature, the Royal Horticultural Society also support the training and development of professional and amateur gardeners.
