Our Garden Library lends to RHS members and is open to all garden visitors for reference. We provide comfortable facilities for browsing books, relaxing with the latest gardening magazines and for undertaking research. We can also help visitors use the collection to find answers to their enquiries.
We’re moving the Garden Library to make way for an exciting new Welcome Building. The Garden Library is temporarily closed while we transfer to the lovely Gardiners’ House, which will be open by Easter, making the house accessible to the public for the first time.
We look forward to seeing you there.
More about the Library move
Our Research Library specialises in horticultural taxonomy and science. Available to RHS staff, students and visitors by appointment. Here we keep unique collections of horticultural science, research as well as the Wisley Garden archives.
Research facilities available by appointment.
Copies of all RHS Bursary reports are held by the Wisley Library, to look at if you are preparing to apply for a bursary, or need to write up your own report, as well as a source of information and inspiration on the places or topics written about.
Digital copies of all bursary reports from 2010 onwards can be seen on-screen at the Wisley Garden Library. Pdfs may also be requested by email from firstname.lastname@example.org. Copies of all other bursary reports are kept in off-site storage, and must be requested two weeks in advance.
To find records of RHS Bursary Reports via the library online catalogue, use the search term RHS Bursary Reports in the Subject field. To find shortlisted or prize-winning bursaries – the best examples – use the search term bursary and (short$ or winner$) or look at the latest winners in the Bursary section of the website.
