Be part of one of the largest industries in the UK; horticulture has opportunities for everyone
The horticultural industry is one of the largest employers in the UK. A career in horticulture could mean anything from a hands-on gardener to a research scientist. There are many, many opportunities out there.
We've joined forces with the likes of the Institute of Horticulture, The National Trust, English Heritage and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to set up the GROW initiative to let people know about the great opportunities horticulture has to offer.
We employ more than 700 people. Ranging from gardeners to shop assistants, carpenters to botanists, show managers to finance assistants - we've got a huge variety of opportunities.
Get involved with the RHS through competitions and other opportunities we have each year, for all age groups, such as:
We offer a comprehensive education programme, for those wanting to gain qualifications and or experience before entering the horticultural trade.
