Evening all, 
Was feeling a bit down in the dumps today as my little girl has gone off on her jolly holidays with her grandparents leaving me at a bit of a loose end so I thought i'd have a mooch around Wisely to cheer myself up. I have to say it worked  :D 

I thought some of you may enjoy some of these piccys...


I'm looking forward to seeing this established in a few more years from now


I think some of you are fond of Monty's banana so these are for you  :D :D 



I've never really been fussed by Bonsai trees but I really liked this little Acer... just beautiful

    You're so welcome, I know i'm very fortunate to have it just down the road so I do like to share the pics for those far away :)

    I'm on a mission this summer to visit lots of gardens in and around Surrey so I will share my visits on here :)

    Lovely pics! 
    I gasped at the Astrantia bed - wow! - as my ONE plant was munched by slugs and was promptly dug out and is currently in ‘intensive care’. 
    That Acer...gorgeous! 
    My garden and I live in South Wales.

    Oh aren't they special (Astrantia), i have a few in this shade and white (major) and i just love them. Sorry the slugs got to yours  :s
     Honestly I lay in bed at night thinking about all the slugs in my garden and I go cold :D i'm goingto order some nematodes treatment as i'm fed up of them treating my garden like a buffet (well it is to them I suppose) grrrrr

    Thanks MrsF.  Lovely pics.  More please.   haven't been to Wisley for a few years now and then it was just a raid on the plant centre as had no time to stop and see more.

    Smashing pictures. Haven't been to Wisley for years, it's just a bit too far for a comfortable day trip unfortunately, but your pics make me want to go again. 
    Re astrantia and slugs, mine don't get eaten - are yours very small plants?

    I raided the garden centre before and after this afternoons visit  :D I have to get it out of my system before I walk around the gardens but on my way round I normally see things I want so have to go back to the shoppy bit on the way out! Eek  :D
