six principles which guide plant health practice in all we do"},"type":"Heading"}"> \n
\nThe arrival of new pests and diseases in the UK is linked to the rise in the volume and diversity of plants being imported. Changes in climate, especially warmer winters, may also enable more pests and diseases to become established in our gardens.","image":"/getmedia/cd22b41f-0e94-42f2-8656-851da865b4a5/Web-Use-170510beel0174.jpg?width=940&height=627&ext=.jpg","urlLabel":"Protect your garden","url":"/science/plant-health-in-gardens/protect-your-garden?ext=."},"type":"IntroWithImage"}">
\nOur Plants for Bugs experiment found that native plants support marginally more invertebrates than non-natives. Plants from the northern hemisphere support more than those from the south, yet late flowering southern hemisphere plants provide important resources at the end of the season.","image":"/getmedia/31129d96-c1ee-4943-84aa-ca6082852163/RHS_MAR0020709.jpg?width=940&height=627&ext=.jpg","urlLabel":"Plants for Bugs results","url":"//"},"type":"IntroWithImage"}">
\nOur plant pathologists diagnose the cause of garden plant diseases and study their biology to provide advice to gardeners on how to control them.","image":"/getmedia/ada61393-e11f-43a1-93af-948f9301c809/Web-Use-_TSC2042.jpg?width=940&height=624&ext=.jpg","url":"//","urlLabel":"Current Research"},"type":"IntroWithImage"}">
\nInnovative management and control strategies are a priority for RHS research so we launched the RHS honey fungus hunt: a survey asking members of the public to submit records of honey fungus in UK parks and gardens. The survey is now closed and results will be shared soon.","urlLabel":"Honey fungus advice","url":"//","image":"/getmedia/48f88abd-20af-4f32-a5e3-9f53d2909ea8/signs-of-honey-fungus.jpg?width=520&height=346&ext=.jpg"}]},"type":"Carousel"}">
