We are currently producing a series of RHS Grower Guides. Each one focuses on a particular genus, and contains a wealth of information to help you select the best varieties for your garden. Click the covers in the bookcase above to view or download individual guides.

To access trials reports please go to the RHS Plant Trials Database.
Although they are now being superseded by Grower Guides, plant trial bulletins are still available to download (see list below). Please be aware that they may not give the most up-to-date information on AGMs – please consult our AGM lists for current awards.
