We believe everyone should benefit from growing plants to build stronger, healthier and happier communities. 

 

 

The RHS is developing RHS Garden Bridgewater, an exciting new 154 acres garden in Salford. This is the first time we have built a garden from scratch and we are excited about the difference the project can make to Salford and the wider region. Benefiting communities is at the heart of our plans, to connect people through this new inspirational space from the start.
