New Tours to China â€“ In celebration of the centenary of RHS Chelsea Flower Show
Join us as we follow in the footsteps of the original plant hunters, celebrating the centenary of RHS Chelsea Flower Show with a range of exclusive horticultural tours to China, a source of fascination for plant lovers for the past 200 years. Vast, diverse and rich in culture and history, the country is home to one eighth of the world's plant biodiversity.
As a Society, our relationship with China goes back to our earliest days at the beginning of the 19th Century, when John Reeves first started sending us plants and images from his base in Canton. Now, two centuries later, we have teamed up with China experts Wendy Wu Tours to create some wonderful horticulturethemed holidays. Their 15 years' experience of operating holidays to the region has helped us to develop three first class itineraries focusing on the diverse horticultural attractions that this destination has to offer: from the sub-tropical peaks of Guilin to the beautiful gardens of Suzhou; Yunnan's Jade Dragon Snow Mountain to Yuanyang to the great nurseries of Sichuan and magnificent Emeishan.
Whichever of these intriguing tours you choose, we look forward to welcoming you on a very special RHS Garden Holiday
