Rainy weather won’t stop you from having fun this half-term at RHS Rosemoor – discover a whole new World on Your Windowsill this February with a week of fun family activities.

This holiday programme of events is jam-packed with gardening activities, crafting, and the chance to leave with handmade items that will brighten up the home. Whatever the weather, families will be able to get inspired about growing indoors, learn to sow seeds and look after plants.

Build your own marimo pet terrarium, get growing with bean germinating experiments and edible windowboxes or create your very own sun catcher. Or head out into the garden and hunt down plants that can also live indoors!
