Who fancies a trip to Wisley?

Last year, a few forum members met for a day out visiting a couple of London gardens (Lambeth Palace, Chelsea Physic Garden). The year before, a similar but not identical group went to Kew. Wisley came up as a suggestion for this year - so who's in?

I've created a Doodle poll for us to share our availability: https://doodle.com/poll/6dtfa2zbunguxegv
Please click on the link and tick your preferred dates. Please use your forum username or something close to it, not your real name, so we all know who we mean!

Wisley is not easily accessible by public transport, but a cab from the nearest rail stations - West Byfleet or Woking - would not be too bad if shared, so the aim would be for small groups to arrive at the same time and share a cab. Obviously it's also possible to drive.

    Yay!

    I forgot to say, the poll has three options: Yes, No, and 'Yes, if need be'. If you click on a date once, it's a Yes. No click is a No. And two clicks on  a date is 'Yes, if need be', ie: not your preferred date, but if it was the only date everyone else could do, you'd be willing.

    Jolly good :)

    Another couple of things I forgot to say: Wisley is free for RHS members plus one guest, so it may be that between us we could all get in free, meaning the only cost would be travel. And of course CAKE.

    Also, you can change your dates on the Doodle poll if your availability changes, so please don't hang back and wait to see what everyone else is doing. If we all did that, nothing would ever get arranged! If you'd like to come, please tick a box or two.
