Rosemoor to accept children free of charge

Families looking for a garden and greenhouse-focused day out in August may wish to consider the Royal Horticultural Societys (RHS) Garden Rosemoor.

The attraction is set to make entry to under-16s free of charge for the entirety of August.

It will mean a family of four can enjoy the variety of specimens in its grounds and glasshouses for £13.

Furthermore, all through the month there will be themed weeks running, which focus on different continents.

The first – from August 1st to 7th – will be based on Africa and will include a plant hunter trail and drum lesson based on the flora and culture there.

Other themes include America, Asia and Australia – with events being relevant to whichever topic is being covered that particular week.

The restaurant at RHS Rosemoor will also serve food to match the continent, to ensure children learn as much as possible during their visit.

In other news, the society is hoping to encourage garden and greenhouse lovers to pass on tips to their friends and family as part of its Dig Together Days in September.
