RHS Wisley15th July 2016 • Places to Visit • Stephanie Donaldson
It was our local allotment association’s annual day out – and for the fourth time in five years they elected to go to Wisley. It’s a good decision, because no matter what type of gardener you are, there are always things that will be of interest. I was hugely impressed by the new South African meadows which conjured up the real thing amazingly well, despite their cultivated surroundings. In the glasshouse I was stopped in my tracks by Brillantasia owariensis, while outdoors a planting of the carnivorous saracena looked very happy at the base of the Rock Bank and alliums enlivened the long grasses in one of the wilder corners of Wisley. I will do future posts on other things that caught my eye.
