RHS Garden Wisley

I worked at RHS Garden Wisley from the 29th of February to the 4th of March.

There is the Glasshouse, the Rock Garden, the Model Gardens, the Bonsai Walk, the Alpine house, the Orchard and so on.

Our training was in the Glasshouse, so it was warm!!

The Glasshouse has four zones, Moist Temperate Zone, Dry Temperate Zone, Tropical Zone and Root Zone.

The Tropical Zone did an event ‘Butterflies in the Glasshouse’.

I saw many kinds of butterflies! They were beautiful.

We stayed at the Hanbury Court. It’s like Red Lion Row of Longwood.

I made many new friends!

I very much enjoyed the training and talking with friends.

Thank you so much!
