Dunsborough Park and RHS Wisley

The undoubted highlight of our visit to Dunsborough Park was the glorious display of well grown dahlias, which provided a kaleidoscopic range of colours. We also admired the carefully crafted landscaped areas, including a series of descending ponds. We were guided by a well-informed gardener, originally from Ukraine.

As at any time of the year, RHS Wisley had much to offer –surely one of the great British gardens. The twin mixed borders were a particular attraction with many plants of late Summer and early Autumn flowering in profusion. The rose garden was also well worth visiting, with many bushes in full bloom. Some of us were enticed by the wide spectrum of plants for sale in the Plant Centre.

This was a fitting end to what had been another excellent programme of Summer garden visiting by Reading Gardeners.
