When landscape gardener Lancelot 'Capability' Brown was invited to work in Ireland, he famously replied: "I haven't finished England yet.”

Wherever you are and however much time you have, we will happily recommend our favourites for you to enjoy.
Founded more than 100 years ago, Wisley is the oldest and most diverse of the four RHS gardens and its collections include cultivated plants of national significance. What makes it particularly special is the fascinating blend of historical and modern experimental planting.
Wisley is also home to a team of scientists, who are hard at work researching a whole range of horticultural issues that affect our everyday lives.
We can also arrange a wonderful picnic within your favourite spot of the garden.
The 15th century Manor House was altered by Ernest Newton in 1903-1905 for Charles Holme, founder of the leading Arts and Crafts magazine The Studio. The garden was designed and planted in 1908 and 1909 by Gertrude Jekyll.
This is the most accurately and fully restored of her gardens. The garden consists of a Wild garden where grass paths run amongst rambling roses, shrubs and trees to a planted pond.
The Formal garden holds herbaceous borders with colours running from cool colours at either end to hot in the centre, a rose lawn, planted drystone
walls, bowing and tennis lawns. This is surrounded by a nuttery, kitchen garden, and orchard with pergolas and arbours.
The Savill Garden is a place of constant discovery, and of interlocking gardens, containing distinctive areas such as Spring Wood, The Summer Wood, The Hidden Gardens, The Summer Gardens, The Glades, Autumn Wood, The Azalea Walks and The New Zealand Garden.
The garden is a horticultural work of art, formed through centuries of landscape design, with influences of ‘Capability’ Brown and Humphry Repton. Four lakes form the heart of the garden, with paths circulating through the glades and wooded areas surrounding them.
Each owner has left their impression, which can still be seen today in the layout of the lakes, the construction of Pulham Falls, the planting of Palm Walk and the many different tree and shrub species from around the world. Winter brings misty mornings and frosty trees to give the garden a timeless, sculptural beauty.
