Membership subscriptions are critically important to the RHS because we are engaging in more work now than at any time in our 200-year history. As a registered charity that receives no Government funding, membership brings in much-needed income to help secure gardens and gardening, and advance our charitable objectives. Our objectives include growing our RHS Campaign for School Gardening, engaging communities through Britain in Bloom, developing our RHS Gardens, furthering research into pests and diseases affecting gardeners today and enabling members to share our vision ‘to enrich everyone’s life through plants, as well as to make the UK a greener and more beautiful place’.

What does the RHS do with money from members?

What does the RHS do with money from members?

We use money from membership subscriptions to help fund our charitable work. Together, we’ll be helping millions of school children sow, grow and learn through our RHS Campaign for School Gardening as well as inspiring communities right across Britain to get gardening.
