Whatever the weather, make your way to RHS Garden Rosemoor in Devon for February half term fun from Saturday 11 to Sunday 19 February 2017.

There will be fun drop-in family craft workshops inside in the Leaning Centre with a different theme every day. Make your own rain gauge and design a weather clock or how about creating a Tornado in a jar!

Youngsters can become weather hunters on a daily weather trail through the garden and find out about the different types of weather – from sun and snow to hurricanes and hailstorms – and learn about the weather systems that affect the planet. The garden trail runs daily from 11 – 17 February 2017.

Was 2016 the wettest year on record? Or was it the driest, the hottest, the windiest? On Tuesday 14 February, visitors can listen to a talk from Rosemoor’s very own ‘Weatherman’ as he shows visitors the Rosemoor Weather Station and explains what it can tell us.

On Friday 17, we are joined by Rob Plummer from Meteorological Office in Exeter – the main source for all of the UK weather forecasts seen on TV or heard on radio. He will be helping families with loads of weather related activities.

So come rain or shine this February Half Term, there are some amazing fun family activities to enjoy at Rosemoor – all of which are free with normal garden admission.

RHS members have free garden entry. Visit www.rhs.org.uk/rosemoor or call 01805 626810 for more details.
