RHS Garden Wisley is the flagship garden of the Royal Horticultural Society, home to some of the largest plant collections in the world and to its research activities. The site has been transformed over the last few years, with new gardens and trial gardens, a new library and research building, and greatly enhanced plant centre and visitor facilities, with lots to see and enjoy. Extensive plant sales are available at Wisley, and plant sales are also available at Polesden Lacey - please bring bags.
Polesden Lacey (National Trust) occupies a magnificent setting in the Surrey Hills. Its gardens are Grade II* listed and include an Edwardian walled rose garden with over two thousand roses, a double herbaceous border, house borders and orchards, with cutting and kitchen gardens producing flowers and vegetables for the house and café. There will be a chance to see the house as well.
