This week, Christina and I had the opportunity to spend a week working at RHS Wisley. Each day, we rotated to a different department to see the daily operations at Wisley.
Besides being an excellent display garden, Wisley also conducts trials for cultivars to determine if they are worthy for an Award of Garden Merit (AGM). I was fortunate enough to be with the trials team on the day that there was an assessment for the Dahlia trial. Nurserymen, gardeners, and enthusiasts who have a keen interest of Dahlias judged dahlias that nurseries of individuals submitted to be trialed.
Wisley is a massive garden. Over a dozen times, I was lost. Fortunately, there was always something interesting around to admire.
