Wisley, 26th May 2011
This year the excursion with the Meopham Garden Club was to the Royal Horticultural Society garden at Wisley. We had been there in October 2007 but now was the chance to see the garden at a different time of the year. After the hot and dry weather of the past few months it was rather cool with the odd shower. However, I was able to see most of the garden, including parts that I had missed on the previous visit.
