Fat discount on award-winning plants magazine

You could save more than 35% on a subscription to Britain’s award-winning magazine for people who love plants.

You’ll have noticed that I mention The Plantsman here every now and again. This is the Royal Horticultural Society’s magazine that takes a deeper look at ornamental plants and how to grow them. Published four times a year, it features plant profiles, discusses developments in horticultural techniques and botanical research, brings news of plant name changes (and the reason why), profiles eminent horticulturalists... and more. Not long ago it won the British award for the best gardening magazine.

In just the last couple of years the plant profiles have featured: Acer, Actinidia, Amorphophallus, Arum, Blechnum, Bletilla, Calanthe, Canna, Clerodendron, Corylopsis, Crocus, Disporum, Enkianthus, Eucryphia, Gladiolus, Helleborus, Hoya, Lonicera, Magnolia, Mahonia, Ornithogalum, Rafflesia and Roscoea – and many more. Take a look at The Plantsman’s webpage for more details.

The Plantsman is not available on the news stands, it’s subscription only, and the reason I’m mentioning all this now is that the RHS is offering an attractive discount on new subscriptions. Something it doesn’t do very often, in fact I can’t remember them ever offering a discount like this. You can save from 17% to over 35%!

To subscribe at these discount rates call the RHS on 020 7821 3000 (44 20 7821 3000 from outside the UK) and quote the reference: PLSO. Or download the application form. Don't you just love a bargain?

Sorry, Alaska Salmon Fishing, but as I say in the piece these deals are only for new subscribers.

I've always been interested in ornamental plants. This is great!

Great mag!


A 35% discount is no small discount and subscribers would be saving a substantial amount of money on their subscription to this magazine. Deals like this increase the amount of subscribers to the magazine, which would cover the lost revenue from the discount given through advertisements to a larger audience inside the magazine. Gardening is a very popular hobby which has many health benefits, and a magazine like this one upholds the beautiful aspects of it.

The fact that this magazine is only available to order online shows how much online business has expanded. Retailers are choosing to market their products solely online due to the targeting functions available to them. Through blogs such as yours, targeted towards people interested in gardening, this magazine is gaining publicity and more subscribers. The discount is the cherry on the cake which new subscribers can benefit from. Keep up the excellent work on your blog.


My brother recommended I would possibly like this web site. He was once entirely right. This publish truly made my day. You cann't believe simply how much time I had spent for this info! Thanks!
