Helen Bostock

Senior Horticultural Advisor

I am amazed by the number of different insects we have found living in our Plants for Bugs garden. Just shows how important even the smallest gardens are.

I’ve been at the RHS for more than 20 years, currently holding the position of Senior Horticultural Advisor. My passion is for wildlife gardening, which has brought me great pleasure, not least through encounters with wildlife at our home in the Cotswolds.

As Project Manager for the Plants for Bugs research project, I work closely with our Science and Curatorial teams, while my activities with the Wildlife Gardening Forum help me to share this enthusiasm with many people and organisations outside the RHS. Amateur photography, growing cut flowers, turning our garden pond into a haven for amphibians and walking our dog are all part of my life.
