We subscribe to more than 500 current journals covering gardening, garden design, botany and horticultural science. Important historical gardening periodicals are also a key part of the collections at London and Wisley.
The Plantsman, The Garden and The Orchid Review are three of the world’s most respected gardening journals.
All RHS libraries keep these titles, including all past issues.
