Wisley Part Five – The Centenary Glasshouse

I promised you a sample of the delights of the RHS’s Centenary Glasshouse, and here they are.


Usually in glasshouses the flowers are the stars of the show so just for a change let us begin by bringing foliage to the fore and letting leaves revel in the lime-light.

Foliage in all shapes, sizes, textures, markings and colours are to be found around every corner.

About greenbenchramblings

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

    Great place to visit. So much to see in one place.

  2. I’m having plant envy with the temps in the mid 20’s and snow on its way.

    I’ve just spent a very enjoyable time reading through your Wisley posts… and wow! It’s on my to do list this year (it was on my list last year but I never got around to it). The sculptures are lovely and that greenhouse is certainly a site to behold! Thanks Malc for an enjoyable set of posts x

    • Do make sure you go! When you have been once you just keep having to go back. We have a 4 hour drive to get there so we spend a couple of days exploring the gardens every time. Always a treat.
