More information about the RHS Members’ Seed Scheme


The RHS Members’ Seed Scheme is available exclusively to members of the RHS. Members can order up to 15 packets of seed which have been harvested from RHS Gardens. Please note that seed can only be sent to addresses in the UK and EU, plus Iceland, Norway and Switzerland.

Throughout the year seed is gathered from a wide range of different plants, including annuals, bulbs, herbaceous perennials, trees and shrubs. The Seed Team at RHS Garden Wisley then dries, cleans and packs the seeds ready for dispatch between January and April.

Our aim is to inspire and encourage our members to have a go at growing from seed and to give them an opportunity to grow a little piece of the RHS at home. We are committed to cultivating a wide range of plants to the highest standard so that you can be assured of a good selection to choose from.

To take advantage of the RHS Members’ Seed Scheme there is a charge of £8.50, which helps us to cover our costs for seed collection, admin and postage.
