To be able to continue providing all this fabulous information, and take part in shows like this our plant societies need members. So why not think about joining the one that represents your favourite plant? The websites will give you all the details needed for joining and tell you more about each society.
The RHS currently works with more than 40 plant societies, giving everybody the opportunity to take part in plant shows, special events and workshops.
Many of these plant societies hold shows and exhibitions at one or more of the RHS Gardens. These provide the society with the opportunity to hold competitions, promote displays of plants and photographs, showcase unusual or new species, sell plants, provide workshops and demonstrations and promote their society to visitors.
