- RHS Fruit and Flowers Slim Calendar
- RHS Illustrated Slim Diary
- RHS Easel Calendar

The range will also include two deluxe products:

The calendars and diaries will be available at a wide range of book, card and gift shops, as well as supermarkets, department stores and RHS shops from September 2020.

The market for the range is expected to be RHS members and gardening enthusiasts as well as gift givers of all ages.
