    Anyone else?

    Just tagging a few people who have expressed an interest in a 'Forum Trip' in the past, but everyone welcome!
    @Allotment Boy @Dovefromabove @WonkyWomble @Topbird @gardeninglily1 @Busy-Lizzie . Also, I may have tagged the wrong @BeausMum before. @Big Blue Sky - is that you on the Doodle?

    I've removed a few dates where only two of the 5 who have filled it in can make it. @Liriodendron I know you can't complete it yet, but hopefully there are still plenty of options for you.

    Enjoy! I like that Bonsai walk they have there. Came across it by accident.
    We can't tempt you over the water for another trip in a couple of months, then ? ;)

    Can't come this year so please do take lots of lovely photos and share them.  It's ages since I had a whole day at Wisley.  The last few times it's been a quick one hour visit, coffee and plant raid before heading back to cross the Channel.

    Big Blue Sky is me 👋
    I work full time so can only go on a weekend, and I would love to be a guest of a member as otherwise I need to buy a ticket. 
    So I’m a difficult one 😄😄 but I would go if I can, and would pay for myself if needed. Thank you for double checking @LG ;

    Thank you, LG. We will be in Norfolk some of that time but we have a stream of friends and family coming to stay and it's a long drive. I'll think about it. I have been following this thread with interest though. I wish it was Bressingham you were coming to, only 10 mins away!

    Thanks for remembering me @LG_ 🙂

    I would have enjoyed coming to Wisley. I've been a couple of times and it's very interesting. I also happen to have a friend who lives about 5 miles from the gardens. She has a spare bed and mixes a decent G&T so it should have been a very easy trip for me to say yes to.

    However, we shall be in the far north of Scotland for nearly all of the proposed visit dates 😢 The actual dates of our hols will be determined by the still-unknown arrival date of our new motorhome. At the rate things are going we might still be waiting at the end of June.... So, if I can join you - I will. But it looks unlikely at the moment.

    Hope you all have a wonderful day😎

    Also got a coach trip to Great Dixter in a few weeks so that is probably my 'overseas' gardens quota for the year.
    Lots of NGS gardens on the Island though to enjoy over the summer!

  • @LG_ @Big Blue Sky thank you for thinking of me. I have never been to Wisley as it is soooo far away haha (I’m in NW). But me and little sis were thinking of going to Hampton Court in July so I will have a chat and see if Wisley is do-able instead. I’ll be in touch  :)
