This outstanding Royal Horticulture Garden at Wisley is a must-see for people interested in gardens. Recently (six months prior to our visit) a new huge glasshouse was constructed at Wisley complete with tropical, sub-tropical and temperate plants. The construction of the glasshouse and establishment of such a huge range of plants from around the world has been a major achievement.

Education is central to the Society’s charitable purpose. 'One of our key responsibilities is to increase understanding among a new generation of gardeners, not only of the pleasure that plants bring, but also of the economic, social and environmental value of plants and growing them. This is one of the reasons we have introduced our Vision for Learning policy - Cultivating Futures - which puts plants at the heart of people's lives.' comments from Wisley Gardens

One of the main aims of the RHS has always been to train gardeners of the future . Students have been learning their craft at RHS Garden Wisley since 1907, and more recently at Rosemoor, Hyde Hall and Harlow Carr. Every year applications for our placements are received from all over the world.
