Visit to RHS Wisley

On Saturday 11th February Jean and I spent a very pleasant day at RHS Wisley. This was the last day of the Iris and Cyclamen Show held in the Hilltop event hall. 

The displays were beautiful. So uplifting to see so many spring colours after a long, cold winter. We were amazed at the variety in size and pattern of cyclamen leaves, all in perfect condition of course.

The Iris Fields of Hall Road, Wenhaston IP19 9HF were selling small pots of irises to which we both succumbed!

In the wider gardens, the snowdrops were out in force and two varieties of Hamamelis stood out against the otherwise bare trees. 

Sophie Ryder’s Dancing Hares gave an appropriately joyful spring-like feel to the day.

We couldn’t leave without visiting the plant shop and were both tempted by the wonderfully perfumed Sarcacocca which were on sale – the dark green leaved variety for Jean and the lighter green for me.
