Wisley: A Celebration

Synopsis
A programme celebrating 100 years of the Royal Horticultural Society’s garden at Wisley. Nigel Colborn explores how the garden emerged from a simple Surrey woodland to a world centre of horticultural excellence and how it coped with hurricanes and the impact of war. As the garden now faces issues of global warming and conservation, Roy Lancaster reflects on Wisley’s exciting plant collections. Penelope Hobhouse discusses the revolutions in garden fashion and Piet Oudolf describes his bold new borders.
