Our lending service makes the most comprehensive gardening collection in the world available to RHS members in their own home
Our lending collection consists of thousands of titles covering every aspect of horticulture from specialist plant literature to general gardening advice.
You can borrow books from three of our libraries:
If you cannot visit us contact us to arrange a postal loan or telephone the Lindley Library on 020 7821 3050.
Postal charges are calculated at cost. Check the packaging to establish the cost of outward postage, and send your payment together with the enclosed invoice, on receipt of the parcel.
You can also renew your loans through the online catalogue. See how to renew online.
Your RHS membership card allows you to borrow up to five books or DVDs for up to four weeks.
You may renew these items for a maximum of two further periods of four weeks, provided that no one else has requested them. Search our online book catalogue to see if we have what you need.
To become a library member you will need to complete a borrower registration form. Your library membership is valid for the same period as your RHS membership.
