You can follow RHSI on social media by clicking on the links on the right of every page. You can also subscribe to the weekly email newsletter with details of events. The Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland organises a wide variety of events each year including lectures, tours, garden visits, floral art demonstrations, workshops, plant sales and social occasions.

A magnificent RHSI Sweet Pea Show was held this weekend in the National Botanic Gardens. With thanks to Ignatius O'Brien for his wonderful organisation, to the National Botanic Gardens for hosting the show and to all of the competitors and volunteers who all contributed to make the Show such another great success.

Following the success of the past two years, another Garden Show will be held at Russborough on Sunday 28 July featuring plant stalls, talks, demonstrations, tours and gardening advice.  Tickets are available now.

The RHSI Garden Russborough is open to visitors every day during the summer months. On Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm you can meet the gardening volunteers, learn about their work and perhaps even decide to come along and volunteer yourself. The garden is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 12.30 to 3.30 and Sunday 2 to 5. Plants and produce are on sale.  On 22 June North Kildare Beekeepers installed three beehives in the garden.
