Title: Wisley April 2010
Post by: Eric Locke on April 03, 2010, 09:18:51 PM
Hi

After visiting Wisley today I thought I would share some photos with you all

It was also the Cyclamen Soc Spring Show, so a few images from this too.
I have quite a number to show, so to make it easier I will more or less post them as they were taken and without naming them.
I will start of with the Alpine house, which is always my first stop. ;)

Eric

Goodness me, Eric, you've excelled yourself there.... what a terrific visit to share with us! In the alpine and glass-houses the displays are super and the Cyclamen show so neat but I cannot get over what a difference a few hundred miles makes to the outside garden.... which seems weeks ahead of us for most things! A real treat, and a lot of work to prepare and post for  the Forum... many thanks!   8)

A great and marathon effort there Eric, thanks so very much. Wisley looks immaculate at every turn, rather different from when I was there in '93.

Great show, Erik.

Wisley is well ahead of us here, something which surprised me.
