The Teddington Gardener

That garden between the double herbaceous borders and the rose gardens – continuing the tour around RHS Wisley

I can never remember the name of this garden, but is is just behind the double herbaceous borders at Wisley and joins up with the old Jubilee rose garden (pretty much just roses) and the newer garden where roses are matched with a great deal of complimentary planting, shrubs, trees, grasses and herbaceous perennialness.

While there is structure, with a central water feature and paths rectangulating around the garden, the plants have all gone a bit wild, so the whole space feels loose, without anchor (and there is a lot of bindweed too – something that has caused them to close this area off before and probably will do again if they are to control the problem). All a bit wild and woolly for me at the moment and that really is saying something, so we will move swiftly into the two rose gardens….
