A quick scoot around the meandering paths that wind round the slopes of Battleston Hill in the RHS gardens at Wisley. I had a glimpse of what I might find in the Wild Garden, another part of the gardens there, when I visited earlier in the week and had less than an hour to explore these fresh enchanted woods yesterday. But time very well spent – the rhododendrons and azaleas are at their colourful (and for me, often fragrant) best, I think you can agree?
I’m sorry not to have, with the exception on the unusual specimen at the end, given any names. No time, no time! Sheds to buy, you know, and a trip up to town to see Titus Andronicus at The Globe Theatre in the evening….
I still have to fit in a visit to the Isabella Plantation within Richmond Park – a superb display of azaleas and rhododendrons. Today however is the turn of the gardens of Petersham House, open as part of the National Garden Scheme. I’m hoping there is more sun than showers, though both a promised. Lunch at Petersham Nurseries afterwards, if you please!
