As the winter frost melts away, nature awakens with vibrant colours, sweet scents, and the promise of new life. There’s no better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than by immersing oneself in the beauty of the RHS Malvern Spring Show 2023. This eagerly anticipated event, held at the stunning Three Counties Showground in Worcestershire, is a showcase of breath-taking displays, inspiring show gardens, and a celebration of all things horticulture. The Ludlow Distillery team will be back as sponsors for the second year, and it is going to be bigger than ever – with new products, tastings and collaborations to share with you.
The RHS Malvern Spring Show, running from 11th to 14th May, promises to be a fantastic experience for both avid gardeners and casual visitors alike. With a rich history dating back to 1985, the show has evolved into a must-visit event for anyone seeking gardening inspiration, expert advice, or simply a day out surrounded by natural beauty. This horticultural extravaganza is the perfect place for us to introduce you all to our new Coronation Ludlow Rose Gin as well. Our limited-edition Ludlow Rose Gin is inspired by the gardens of Highgrove, the private home of HM The King, and combines rose, lemon and dried dates to create a brand-new gin that’s fit for a king.
One of the highlights of the RHS Malvern Spring Show is the stunning show gardens that are created by talented designers and landscapers. These breath-taking displays are carefully crafted to reflect current trends in garden design, horticultural innovation, and environmental sustainability. Visitors can expect to see a diverse range of show gardens, from traditional English country gardens to contemporary urban spaces, each with their own unique flair and creative vision.
In addition to the show gardens, the Floral Marquee is another must-visit attraction at the RHS Malvern Spring Show. Filled with a stunning array of flowers, plants, and horticultural displays, the Floral Marquee is a true paradise for plant lovers. Here, visitors can find inspiration for their own gardens, purchase unique plants from specialist growers, and seek expert advice on plant care and cultivation.
The RHS Malvern Spring Show also offers a plethora of educational opportunities for both seasoned gardeners and budding green thumbs. The Expert Zone features talks and demonstrations by horticultural experts, providing valuable insights and practical tips on various gardening topics. The Potting Bench is a hands-on area where visitors can learn about planting techniques, propagation, and other practical skills through interactive workshops. From novice gardeners to experienced horticulturists, there’s something for everyone to learn and enjoy.
The RHS Malvern Spring Show is not just about flowers and plants. It’s also a celebration of food, drink, and local artisans. The Food and Drink Pavilion features a wide range of delicious treats, from artisanal cheeses to locally brewed beers. Visitors can sample and purchase a variety of culinary delights, including fresh produce, preserves, and baked goods, showcasing the best of the local food scene. There are also stalls showcasing handcrafted items, such as garden tools, sculptures, and home accessories, making it a perfect place to find unique gifts or souvenirs.
You will find our Ludlow Distillery team situated in next to the Fire Stage, as well as in the Food and Drink Pavilion – so plenty of opportunity to taste and enjoy our curiously smooth spirits.
