RHS Garden Wisley

RHS Garden Wisley is a large botanical garden with an area of over 970 thousand. m2. It is divided into three zones in which plants characteristic for the tropical, temperate and desert climate can be found. There are several greenhouses, an extensive arboretum, and several so-called model gardens, which show gardening solutions and tips that visitors can then use in their own gardens.

The garden was founded in 1878 by George Fergusson Wilson, a chemist and businessman, a member of the Royal Horticultural Society. It was intended to be a place where demanding plants are successfully grown.

RHS Garden Wisley is one of four gardens managed and run by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). The other three are located in Harlow Carr, Hyde Hall and Rosemoor. Garden Wisley is also the second most paid garden in UK after Kew Gardens.
