You can make a donation, volunteer, buy plants, books or gifts from their shops both online and offline, but if gardening is close to your heart and you’d like to stay more involved in it, why not become a member of the RHS and keep helping them on a daily basis?
You can either buy an annual membership for either yourself or the whole family or even get a lifetime membership.
Of course, there’s also the gift option – and it’s hard to imagine a more useful, environmentally friendly, sustainable and heart-warming gift for any garden lover.
All members get free garden visits, discounted tickets for the shows, a subscription to their monthly magazine The Garden and access to personalised advice.
This would be a great gift to someone special as it’s truly something that will leave a lasting legacy behind.Join the RHS Online
