No kids today so my wife and i popped along to Wisley for the day.
It looked really busy in the car park but once through the doors it must have been one of the quietest visit’s I’ve had in a long time.
First thing that took my breath away was the old victorian tradition of carpet bedding. Over 10,000 plants to create this beauty.
Next after walking around the ornamental pool was this little court yard filled with an awful lot of orange which was nice and warming.
Borders looked great whichever way you turned.
Had a look at the trial gardens. They keep these going for 3yrs then decide if they are worthy of garden merit.
Having seen these we have now decided to find plants that have our name in them so any ideas as to what has either Harry or Charlie in the name?
I shall keep you posted on what we find for the family. I also now know what my sister will be receiving for her birthday.
RHS Wisley, well worth a visit.
P.S. My wife bought 3 more cactus to add to her rapidly growing collection and I bought another Sarracenia as well as coffee and cake.
