Spring at RHS Garden Wisley

The woodland gardens show some of the earliest signs of spring, with hundreds of magnolias and rhododendrons blooming in a huge showcase of colour. Amongst the many varieties of snowdrop to be found in the Rock Garden in early spring, look out for the dainty hues of Iris reticulata, which can also be found lighting up Seven Acres in drifts beneath some of the trees. Later in the season, the garden reveals swathes of cheery daffodils in many more shades than yellow, as myriad cultivars demonstrate the diversity of the springtime favourite.

In the Cottage Garden, the shell-pink blossom of Prunus pendula f. ascendens ‘Rosea’ forms an avenue along both sides of the garden, followed by the vibrant purples of Syringa vulgaris 'Sensation' AGM and Allium hollandicum ‘Purple Sensation’ AGM. Look out for the 170 varieties of peony on show vying for the RHS Award of Garden Merit, as well as 40 different Viburnum plicatum, both putting on a show of beautiful flowers in late spring.

Meanwhile, a beautiful new scheme on the Top Terrace area will greet visitors to Wisley this spring, as the much-anticipated Wisteria Walk is set to open in May – a grand new focal point close to the entrance. This contemporary-styled showcase for the popular spring-flowering climber will be uplit to highlight the suspended racemes in shades of silvery white and violet-purple and is set to become an iconic photo stop for visitors as it matures.
