RBGE welcomes contact across the board with journalists from all quarters. Its Edinburgh-based press office drives news and feature articles on all four of its Gardens for national and international print and broadcast media. This covers all areas of activity, from scientific research and horticultural excellence to our educational work, events, art gallery at Inverleith House and other general activities as a visitor attraction.

We aim to deliver a professional, proactive service which can also react to enquires speedily and effectively. As part of this, we ask the press to keep in mind the fact our staff work in more than 40 countries around the world.

Therefore, using direct numbers and leaving voice mails for key individuals will not necessarily secure you a comment or interview when working to a deadline. Press office staff are up-to-date with on-going projects and will strive to find suitable spokesmen for tight deadlines.

To ensure your enquiries are handled speedily and efficiently, we ask that all press enquiries are made through the Press office.
