What is the difference between these two groups?

Thank you.

    Lots. The Royal Horticutural Society - horticulture - and the National Trust cares for historic old buildings.

    National trust = national treasures.

    Gardens being more popular with visitors last year than houses with something like 70% of members signing up at gardens. How do I know this stuff?image

    The RHS is a gardening charity intended to promote horticultural excellence and to disseminate information, advice, training and advice to gardeners both professional and amateur.  It undertakes research into pests, diseases, best techniques, best plants and trains gardeners.  It promotes gardening in schools, in the commnity and in private. 

    The National Trust is a charity devoted to preserving British heritage.  It buys, or is bequeathed, historical houses of particular cultural or historic significance as well as gardens and landscapes which it works to maintain and preserve for posterity and in doing so keeps old crafts such as traditional carpentry and stone masonry and so on alive too..
