Ramblers and gardeners join forces

Gardeners looking for inspiration for what to grow for next year will be interested to know that the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has joined forces with the UK s longest established walking holiday specialist, Ramblers Worldwide Holidays.

The new partnership will see walks led by expert horticulturalists and will no-doubt inspire walkers to get into their greenhouse to try their hand at growing their own favourites from the trip.

"The combined goal of Ramblers Worldwide Holidays and the Royal Horticultural Society is to give people, who share a passion for flora and a love of walking, an experience which is both inspiring and enriching," explained Ramblers Worldwide Holidays joint managing director Tony Lock.

"Guided by knowledgeable leaders, what could be a better way of enjoying the flowers, trees and plants in any country than on an unhurried walking holiday?

"And, there is also the great social aspect to these holidays with the tremendous level of knowledge and experience shared in a most convivial atmosphere."

A range of walks have been organised and keen gardeners will no doubt be among the first to sign up to for the guided adventures.
