Group tickets to the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) season of 2020 Flower Shows are now on sale, giving organisers the opportunity to plan ahead before the tickets go on general sale.
Events taking place throughout next year include the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival, as well as events at Tatton Park and Chatsworth.
There is something for all plant-lovers at each event from award-winning gardens and floral displays to special talks and hands-on activities.
Melissa Hackney, group sales and marketing manager for RHS, said: “As part of our ongoing commitment to groups, we’re delighted to be putting our group tickets on sale earlier this year, helping group organisers plan ahead for a perfect season of RHS Shows.
“We want to make all our events and gardens as group and coach friendly as possible, and to this end now offer free coach parking for all our shows where we have parking on most of our sites, as well as free, easily accessible parking at all our gardens.”

RHS Flower Show and Garden Combination Tickets:
For some time now, tickets for RHS Chelsea Flower Show for groups have been sold as part of a package with the equivalent number of tickets for another RHS show such as RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival, RHS Chatsworth Flower Show or RHS Tatton Park Flower Show. You can also include a trip to RHS Cardiff Flower Show (where the requirement is two per one Chelsea ticket)
This year the charity is offering a Garden/Show combination ticket, where tickets for RHS Chelsea Flower Show are combined with a trip RHS Garden Wisley. The visit to Wisley can be taken on a different day to the visit to Chelsea and the charity is also looking at introducing a similar package featuring another garden.
