May 27th, Sunday RHS Wisley and Royal Botanic Gardens Kew

Two very large and very different gardens to visit today. We start off with the RHS Wisley garden.
http://www.rhs.org.uk/gardens/wisley/index.asp

Wisley is Britain’s best loved garden with 97ha (240 acres) offering a fascinating blend of the beautiful with practical and innovative design and cultivation techniques. For many, it is the beauty and tranquility of the garden that captures the imagination, with its richly planted borders, luscious rose gardens and the exotica of the glasshouses, but a closer look reveals the real value of Wisley. In the trials fields, the finest flowers and vegetables are identified from the countless new introductions. Elsewhere in the garden, cultivation techniques, such as composting or pleaching, are tried and tested, and a series of model gardens answers the needs of a variety of conditions and circumstances. The Shop at Wisley has the finest selection of horticultural books in the world, complemented by carefully selected merchandise including stationery, specialist food, china, glass, crafts and textiles. A guide to the garden is also available. Always a favourite place to shop for our tour guests!

After lunch at Wisley, we visit Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew on London's South Bank. http://www.rbgkew.org.uk/
 
Again, another must visit.
