RHS Garden Wisley – Surrey, England
Founded in 1878 The Royal Horticultural Society Wisley Garden is the second most visited paid entry garden in the UK, with just under a million visitors in 2010. Despite this impressive traffic it didn’t feel crowded when I visited a few weeks ago.
In 2005 construction was initiated for the £7.7 million, 3,000 m² Bicentenary Glasshouse, an impressive structure divided into three major planting zones – desert, tropical and temperate climates. I’ll upload photos soon. For now, below is a photo of a verdant stratified Wisley panorama, looking very healthy in early autumn.
