Outing Report RHS Wisley

Long Eaton & District Horticultural Society visit to RHS Wisley


Visiting the gardens at Wisley is always a joy, there is always something different to explore, see and do. This visit was no exception, as a new, state of the art welcome centre had been built and an avenue of cherry trees planted to line the route into the gardens. Once inside the gardens we explored the various walks, the large glass houses holding collections of Alpines and exotic plants, or the magnificent rose, vegetable or herb gardens, so much to take in.

As well as the usual treats, the annual Wisley Flower show was taking place, there was over 50 stalls selling a variety of plants, bulbs, bushes and trees, many of which are not readily available in local garden centres. Each stall had a display showing their wares, including, out of season spring flowers, such as daffodils and tulips, to help in making a choice, which gave a seemingly unending sea of colour.  There was also a display of Japanese Art

As part of the flower show, the  National Flower Arrangement Society and the National Dahlia Society both had marques, the NFAS had various themes from handbags made from flowers to exotic displays. The Dahlia tent was a showcase for the very best an absolute riot of colour and form. Soon it was time to return to the coach, but not before a visit to the very tempting shop, a wonderful day out.
