This May half term, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is asking families to get ‘buzzy’, and discover the Power of Superbees, with a week of fun, bee-themed activities at each of the five RHS Gardens (Sat 28 May – Sun 5 June 2022).
As early summer flowers begin to bloom, the RHS gardens (RHS Wisley in Surrey, RHS Bridgewater in Greater Manchester, RHS Harlow Carr in Yorkshire, RHS Hyde Hall in Essex and RHS Rosemoor in Devon) will be a hive of activity. Take a peek into the secret life of bees as you follow the Super Bee garden trail, designed to help families discover more about the important role these pollinators play. Enjoy craft and plant workshops, beekeeping demonstrations, multisensory installations and more.
Selected dates from Sat 28 May – Sun 5 June 2022
From royal lawn art and live brass bands, to celebratory lettuce planting, the RHS gardens will also be celebrating 70 years of Queen Elizabeth’s reign during half term with live music, celebratory planting and fun family activities.
