Early spring at Wisley

It’s the spring half term holiday for us this week, so small girl and I have been visiting Grandma.  My Mum lives a shortish drive from the RHS garden at Wisley, and as there were activities for small girl, we paid a visit.

Spring is most definitely on it’s way at Wisley, and their Snowdrops were out, as were Irises and Hellebores, and also this superb display of naturalised Crocuses.


I particularly liked Crocus vernus ‘Pickwick’, and It’s delicate purple stripes. It’s on my list for next years’ bulbs.


Whilst in the glasshouse, I saw this lovely shrub, Grevillea johnsonii. It’s a native of Australia and needs to spend winter in a conservatory here, which I don’t have, so it will have to join the many others on my dream plant list…


I love the contrasting pinks and lime green of the flowers against the soft glaucous foliage.
