7 reasons why RHS membership is the season’s gift that keeps on growing

We’re already converts to our RHS membership so we’d thought we’d share with you our seven reasons why an RHS membership is the season’s gift to yourself or that someone special in your life.

1. Free days out with family and friends – wonder at the plants and chat over afternoon tea

RHS Membership Butterfly GirlAs an RHS member you’ll get free unlimited access for you and a friend / family member to RHS Gardens and free entry to over 195 Partner Gardens across England.  Your friends and family will be falling over you to get to see the wonders RHS Wisley housing one of the largest plant collections in the world or take tea at Betty’s at Harlow Carr and take in all four glorious seasons.

2. See and be seen at world-class RHS Flower Shows

Chelsea meet upIf anyone knows how to put on a show it’s the RHS and of course it gives you an excuse to add a touch of garden glamour to your wardrobe on an exclusive RHS member only day. You can even enjoy savings on public days.  We challenge you not to be inspired by the fabulous flower displays and jaw-dropping garden design.

Check out the exclusive GardenTags MeetUp on our favourite RHS show flower garden.

3. It gets personal with expert, tailored free gardening advice

The RHS has a team of horticultural oracles at an RHS member’s disposal. Their experts can answer your questions in person, over the phone or by email.  We all need a helping hand at some point and to know someone’s there to give you personalised advice makes us feel that we’re not growing it alone.

4. Did we say that you get an exclusive GardenTags RHS membership discount

We have an exclusive RHS membership discount.  You can get an RHS membership from only £39.25 meaning you save £19.75*.  We are going to tell you to hurry as this offer really won’t last and between you, us and the garden gate post we won’t tell your friend or family member how much you saved on their present 😉

5. Adorn your coffee table with The Garden to get practical advice and inspiration

The Garden magazine

Discover a world of horticulture with The Garden magazine. Read articles on practical gardening, plants & advice along with information on events & shows and celebrating the RHS. It’s worth £54 per annum but you get it free every single month as part of your RHS membership.

6. Elevate the feel good factor by knowing you’re supporting the RHS’ charitable work

The RHS is on a mission to enrich everyone’s life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place. We second that motion, the more people that can be encouraged to get outside growing the better for them, us and our environment.

7. Meet new growing friends

If you’re a member of GardenTags you get to meet fellow growers at the RHS Gardens at our GTMeetUps.  With an RHS membership you’ll be able to get into the RHS Gardens completly free.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up today for an RHS membership for yourself or why not gift it to that someone special.
