Coode-Adams has been treasurer of the Society since 2006 and is also chairman of the Gardens Advisory Committee and Picture Committee, as well as serving on the Woody Plant Committee.

"I'm greatly honoured to be entrusted to maintain the strategy for the development of the RHS on the course set by Council under Peter's able stewardship," he said.

"It is important that we continue to build the horticultural appeal and relevance of the RHS in the modern world."

The position of treasurer will be filled by Andrew Sells.
