June events at RHS Rosemoor.

Paul Harvey Sculpture Exhibition 15 June – 1 September.

Admire the beautiful work of this British sculptor, inspired by his love of birds and Art Deco design, in the calm of the Cool Garden. Some works will be available to purchase.

Festival of Roses, Saturday 15 June – 14 July (Rose Weekend Friday 21 – 23 June).

Immerse yourself in the fragrance and spectacle of thousands of roses in bud and in bloom in two gardens dedicated to the species. There’s no better place to admire the breadth of colour, shape and habitat of these national favourites in early summer. Boasting one of the UK’s largest collections of roses, Rosemoor is home to more than 200 different varieties and over 2,000 specimens, ranging from traditional cottage garden climbers to modern varieties, all planted in different settings and combinations in the heart of the garden. It’s a sensory experience that is not to be missed!

Join one of the weekly walks or talk to their Advisory team to make the most of your visit. Or, for the ultimate summer’s day out you won’t find better than the Rose Weekend 21–23 June when you can enjoy daily walks plus entertainment and a floral-themed Craft and Food Market! Relax with a picnic on our lawns or one of our many benches and let the scent of roses and the sound of live music and birdsong wash over you. Try out our ‘Smell-a-thon’ to vote your favourite scented rose then head to the Garden Room to browse beautiful handmade items created by some of the best crafters and producers in the West Country.

Don’t forget there are also a wide variety of courses and workshops on offer across a broad range of subjects – just visit https://www.rhs.org.uk/gardens/rosemoor/whats-on for details.
