When I heard that there was Lego at RHS Wisely, my first reaction was – “That’s an usual place to sell lego?” Then I heard there was an exhibition taking place in the glasshouse!Continue reading “Lego and horticulture?”
This week I was lucky enough to visit the Glow are RHS Wisley in Surrey.
RHS Wisley is the flagship garden for the Royal Horticulture Society and for someone who grows their own veg, it’s a real treat to go there – I simply don’t go there often enough. The great thing about Wisley is that it changes with the seasons, which means that each time you go – you really do see something new, and the best of the season.
The Glow is no exception. I’d never been to a garden whereby the combination of lighting and plants were the focus. It’s a great idea entice footfall to the gardens during the colder winter months – and it also breaks up the time between Christmas and New Year fantastically.
