and live on Freeview channel 276
The warning will be in place from midday on Friday (20 October) and will remain in place until 6am on Saturday (21 October).
A spokesperson for RHS Garden Harlow Carr said: “Unfortunately due to the forecast of extreme wind and rain expected on Friday due to Storm Babet, we have made the very difficult decision to close RHS Garden Harlow Carr and cancel our ‘Autumn Garden Weekend’ event on 21 and 22 October.
"The extreme weather means it will not be possible to set up the event as planned on Friday and therefore the garden will be closed in order to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers.
“We will continue to monitor the weather and are currently planning to re-open the garden as usual on Saturday.
"The RHS Late Fruit and Vegetable Competition and the apple display from the Northern Fruit Group will go ahead on Saturday and Sunday in the Learning Centre.
“We are very sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment this is likely to cause and we thank you for your understanding.”
Anyone who has booked tickets in advance and would now like to cancel, should contact [email protected] for a refund.
