This year’s 30th anniversary event is on from Tuesday to Sunday, 6 to 11 September 2022.
Located in the heart of the Surrey countryside Wisley has been the Royal Horticultural Society’s flagship garden for over a century. This is the oldest and most horticulturally diverse RHS Garden with 240 acres containing a wide range of plants and landscapes.
The garden’s historical roots date back to 1878 when George Fergusson Wilson (businessman, scientist, inventor, experimental gardener and RHS treasurer) established the ‘Oakwood experimental garden’, with the idea of making ‘difficult plants grow successfully’. When Wilson died, Oakwood (also known as Glebe Farm) was purchased by Sir Thomas Hanbury who gave the Wisley site to the RHS in 1903.
The RHS has kept the scientific spirit of George Wilson alive with the RHS Plant Trials and a new Home of Gardening Science at RHS Hilltop.
Today Wisley is the most popular of the RHS Gardens attracting over a million visitors per year. It’s the 2nd most visited paid entry garden in the UK after the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. Wisley is all about inspirational gardening with world-class horticulture and a year-round programme of events.
Wisley offers an extraordinary array of highlights through the year. From Tuesday to Sunday, 6 to 11 September 2022, the Wisley Flower Show celebrates 30 years with gardening inspiration, expert advice, vibrant floral displays, and fabulous shopping opportunities.
Tickets at the flower show must be pre-booked. Book here....
