Caro Sweet RHS Sculptor in Residence

May 2012

“If The Queen Were A Plant”


Royal British Society Of Sculptor’s Caro Sweet has been asked to be the first-ever sculptor in residence at the RHS Malvern Spring Gardening Show.

Inspired by exhibitors’ discarded plants and materials, Caro will create a Jubilee-themed sculpture throughout the four-day show to be entitled ‘If The Queen Were A Plant”.

Visitors to the RHS Spring Show, held at the Three Counties Showground in Worcestershire from 10th – 13th May, will be able to watch Caro as she incorporates recycled material into her tribute to the Monarch. Caro’s approach means people can expect a little theatre – she has no qualms wielding an angle grinder whilst wearing high heels.

Commenting on her Spring Show project, Caro said:

“Malvern’s Spring Show is the only remaining RHS Show outside London prior to the Jubilee. The sixty-year reign of Her Majesty has seen her grow in strength and move with the times in the same way a tree or plant has to grow.
I’ve long admired the Queen’s more considered approach to life than some Royals and felt that incorporating recycled materials rather than using expensive new ones would be a more fitting tribute.”

Visitors to the Malvern Spring Gardening Show, which is open daily from 9am to 6pm, wanting to see Caro in action will find her in The Show Gardens Arena. For more information on the Spring Show, visit or call the Information Hotline on 01684 584924
