The great thing about growing things is that there is always more to learn, and that is certainly true with apples
The RHS Libraries all have excellent collections relating to apples, covering everything from the history of apple cultivation, specialist monographs and general advice books. RHS members can borrow books and everyone can visit and browse. Access to our rare books, archives and art collections is by appointment. Our library team will be happy to help you find what you need.
