RHS Gardening Advice

The RHS Gardening Advice stands are manned by our team of experts who give advice to visitors at all our shows on a host of subjects. At the RHS we are committed to protecting plant health and ask that visitors bring photographs of their plant problems to our shows rather than live plant material. This applies when visiting the RHS Gardening Advice stands or exhibitors in the floral marquees and will help to safeguard all the plants at the shows.
