The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) was founded in 1804 by Sir Joseph Banks and John Wedgwood for the encouragement and improvement of the science, art and practice of horticulture. Their first flower shows were held in 1820, and they were granted a Royal Charter in 1861 and acquired RHS Garden Wisley, the first of their gardens, in 1903. From their first meetings in a small room off London’s Piccadilly, they have grown to become the world’s largest gardening charity."
