The RHS gifting selection was launched in a limited number of outlets in 2015. This year homeware designer and producer MeldHome has expanded the range. It now includes a gardener’s notebook and flask, a garden sign, planters, magnetic pegs, a mug set, a bird box and a tea towel set. In addition, from May 2016 the range became available at a wider selection of retail outlets, including Waterstones, garden centres and a number of independent retailers across the UK. It is also available at RHS shops and online at rhsshop.co.uk
The RHS range uses imagery from the RHS Lindley Library.
Since April 2016 MeldHome has been a brand of Hacche Retail, which specialises in supplying books, gifts, puzzles and games to the UK retail sector, and to international markets via distribution partners.
The RHS Licensing programme boasts more than 50 licensees in the gardening, gifting and homeware categories. RHS Licensing is growing in 2016 to include educational toys, apparel and accessories, and an expanded garden category. This is supported by a new RHS Licensing Style Guide based on 500 images specially selected from more than 25,000 housed in the RHS Lindley Library.
