THIS year's LANDSCAPE Show – scheduled to take place on 22–23 September in Battersea Park, London – has been postponed until 2021.

A statement from the organisers said: "Following the lead of the Royal Horticultural Society who have now cancelled all shows that were rescheduled for September, it is with deep regret that this year’s LANDSCAPE Show has officially been postponed.

"With social distancing foremost in our minds and the health and wellbeing of everyone in the industry, the difficult decision has been taken to delay the show until early next year. We have made the responsible decision to postpone the show, not by six weeks, but six months, taking us into Spring of 2021 to make sure that we are all as safe as we can be.
"To proceed, we believe, would have placed exhibitors and visitors at risk, even with the most stringent controls especially coming into central London.

"We are currently working on securing new dates in the Spring of 2021 and will advise once they have been decided.

"We are truly saddened that this decision has had to be made but for the sake of our loyal exhibitors and visitors who invest so much in the show we feel it is the right choice."
