Heathrow garden

The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has partnered with Heathrow to bring the best in traditional English gardens to welcome passengers into London.
Between today (15 April) and 25 May, over 8m passengers travelling through the airport will be welcomed with distinctive garden displays to celebrate National Gardening Week (15-21 April) and the Chelsea Flower Show (21- 25 May).
In a first for Heathrow the forecourts of Terminals 3, 4 and 5 have been transformed into a living art installation by Tony Smith, winner of three Royal Horticultural Society best in show awards and gold at RHS Chelsea, RHS Hampton Court, RHS Tatton Park and Gardeners’ World Live Flower Shows.
Over 170 Heathrow and RHS volunteers wearing Wellington boots and gardening aprons will be busy welcoming passengers arriving into London and dispensing gardening advice. Restaurants at the airport will be continuing the theme with specially designed menus to celebrate the season, including native lobster with elderflower foam, pea shoots and violets from Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food and spring salads with edible flowers from “rhubarb”.
Arriving passengers will also be encouraged to start their own English garden at home - 20,000 packets of seeds will be given away in the terminals.
