RHS Gardens."},"type":"Heading"}"> Our seed list is produced each year by a small, dedicated team of staff and volunteers, based at Wisley, who collect, clean and pack seed for members. Covering 175 species, it contains a range of plants including annuals, herbaceous perennials, trees and shrubs, some of which are rare and unusual.


We hope you will be inspired to have a go at growing from seed, which can be fun and rewarding. If you’re not already a member, why not join the RHS to take advantage of this and many other fantastic benefits?

Ordering seed packets","leftText":"

The closing date for Members to order 15 packets of seed as part of the RHS Members’ Seed Scheme 2022 has now passed.


RHS Members’ Seed Scheme 2023


Please join us again from 1 December 2022, when the 2023 Seed Scheme will be opening on a new date for members to order seed packets online with their MyRHS account. 
\nIf you don’t have one, you can create an account and link your membership in just a few minutes.


Delivery of orders


We began to dispatch orders for the 2022 Seed Scheme in January 2022 to addresses in the UK only and aim to send out all orders by the end of April.
\nPlease note: Due to the recent change in export regulations, which govern the sending of plant material overseas, it is with regret that we are no longer able to offer RHS seed to our EU members.
\nIf you haven’t received your order by 1 May 2022, please contact our Seed Team by email: seeddepts@rhs.org.uk

Open pollination\n\n

Our seed is collected from open-pollinated plants. Therefore seed may not come true and may be hybridised.


Toxic seeds


Whilst we make every effort to highlight those seeds which we know to be toxic, it should be assumed that ALL seed could be potentially harmful or cause skin irritation.


Invasive species


We endeavour to exclude seeds of potentially invasive species.


Plants for Pollinators


Those plants flagged with the bee symbol are ‘Plants for Pollinators’. This identifies plants that are good for attracting pollinating insects into your garden.

Please contact the RHS if you are seeking to commercialise the genetic material, its products or resources derived from it.
