Rosemoor

Horray for the RHS as first woman president is announced

RHS has their new first women President - Elizabeth Banks

I'm not often full of praise for the RHS with its rather wonky reputation for encouraging women so it's a delight to see that Elizabeth Banks has been appointed the new President of the RHS effective from 1 July.

Elizabeth Banks has run a highly successful landscape architecture practice for many years and was involved, among many other projects, with the development of the RHS's garden, Rosemoor, in Devon. I'm down in Devon this weekend speaking at the Ways with Words Literary Festival  at Dartington Hall. No time to visit Rosemoor I'm afraid but I'll definitely raise a cheer for Elizabeth Banks, the first RHS President in its almost two hundred year history.
