Gardening Advice

If you are an RHS member and wish to ask a gardening question, please use our online service via MyRHS. If you have not registered for a MyRHS account, you'll need to create an account and link up your membership number and email address first.

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, our face-to-face advice desks are currently closed, and instead our team is focused on supporting RHS members via our online and telephone services. Telephone services have been extended and are now open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm, to provide additional support. RHS Science labs are closed and as a result we are currently unable to process plant samples sent to us for advice. Any samples received at this time will be destroyed. For a quicker answer, members can use our online service via MyRHS to send us photographs as we have advice staff and scientists working online to help with your questions.

Telephone: 01483 479700
Opening hours: Lines are open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm. From 1 September, closed weekend and Bank Holidays. We are closed 21 December to 1 January inclusive.

Please note: Lines can be very busy so calls are limited to one per day per member.

For more information on Gardening Advice, including sending in samples, soil analysis and fruit identification, visit our RHS Gardening Advice page.
