RHS Launches New ‘RHS Grow App’

Gardening beginner or seasoned professional? Whether you need ideas for plants to make the most of your space or want to boost your fruit and vegetable harvest, the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) is on a mission to help the nation grow with the new RHS Grow App.

The RHS Grow App will bring 200 years of gardening experience and horticultural expertise, from RHS botanists, scientists, fruit and veg experts and its garden advisory service, to gardeners’ fingertips.

Available to download for Android or iPhone, the app is for anyone who needs a little trusted advice to help keep their plants happy all through the year. The RHS Grow App provides a single location to identify the plants you have, gather inspiration for new plants, and receive helpful tips and reminders for simple, year-round plant care that will help gardens thrive.

Gardeners can personalise the app by adding their outdoor spaces and their specific plants, including fruit and vegetables, and they will receive regular tips on how to help them grow.

Get growing, whatever your gardening experience
 
  • Helping you to choose plants for your garden, veg patch or windowsill
  • Making it simple to grow plants successfully with timely reminders on how to care for them
  • Easily identify plants in your garden or plants you like
A wealth of garden inspiration
 
  • Be inspired to garden sustainably – learn to compost, save water and garden for wildlife
  • Growing advice for more than 65,000 plants
  • Discover how gardens and green spaces are connected to better physical and mental wellbeing
Martine Parnell, RHS Director of Members, Marketing & Digital, says: “Growing plants helps to support biodiversity and makes people happier and healthier. 26 million people come to the RHS each year for simple and trusted gardening advice and the new RHS Grow App will help your plants flourish by reminding you how to care for them, whether you’re growing your own vegetables or creating a tranquil green space.” 

The RHS Grow App can be downloaded from the App Store or from Google Play. As the app continues to be developed there will be new features and more ways to experience the power of gardening. It's free right now. In the future there will be a fair price to use the app, which will support the work of the RHS.

About the RHS
Since our formation in 1804, the RHS has grown into the UK’s leading gardening charity, touching the lives of millions of people. Perhaps the secret to our longevity is that we’ve never stood still. In the last decade alone we’ve taken on the largest hands-on project the RHS has ever tackled by opening the new RHS Garden Bridgewater in Salford, Greater Manchester, and invested in the science that underpins all our work by building RHS Hilltop – The Home of Gardening Science.
 
We have committed to being net positive for nature and people by 2030. We are also committed to being truly inclusive and to reflect all the communities of the UK.

Across our five RHS gardens we welcome more than three million visitors each year to enjoy over 34,000 different cultivated plants. Events such as the world famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show, other national shows, our schools and community work, and partnerships such as Britain in Bloom, all spread the shared joy of gardening to wide-reaching audiences.

Throughout it all we’ve held true to our charitable core – to encourage and improve the science, art and practice of horticulture –to share the love of gardening and the positive benefits it brings.
