RHS Wisley, Part 2
Here are some more pictures from RHS Wisley. I have to confess I had trouble remembering which pictures were from which part of the garden. I even printed out a map and tried to trace our route, but still ended up a little confused.
I do remember that this is from Battleston Hill. At the time we were there, in September, there were many blooming Hydrangeas. There are also some really massive Gunneras. In spring there is supposed to be an awesome display of Rhododendron and Azalea.
Can’t really remember which building this is, sorry. It had a wonderful mass of Agapanthus, though. Makes me wish that I could grow Agapanthus, but it isn’t hardy in Chicago.
Here’s a bed near the entrance, tiny by Wisley standards, but a really nice combination of a grass that looks like Ornamental Millet and – I don’t know what. Amaranthus? Not plants I grow at home.
I think this is from the Herb Garden.
People do the most amazing things with apple trees. At Giverny they are trained to make living fences. Here they are trained up arbors, which I like even better. This is from the Fruit Demonstration Garden.
Can’t remember for the life of me which part of Wisley these are from. Nice shrub willows, though, and I love all the red, yellow, and orange in the second picture – with an added splash of blue.
Some of you asked about the Rock Garden. Well, here you are.
This is over near the glasshouse. Loved all the Sedum and grasses here.
This building is the plant laboratory, I believe.
Judy took about 250 pictures here, so I’m leaving a great deal out. What’s more, we never even got to see most of RHS Wisley. Guess we’ll just have to plan another trip to the UK.
