An Autumnal walk around RHS Wisley

I love RHS Wisley Gardens, I am forever discovering new places within the grounds, and with the change of seasons there is the change of flowers and plants you see.  This Saturday my mum and I decided to go there for a little walk, seeing as autumn is in full swing, we wanted to go and see the beautiful colours that come alongside the change of season.  We weren’t disappointed!


We headed up through the Rock Gardens and up towards the Orchard.  We have never really explored this area in Wisley before, but knowing it’s apple season we thought it quite apt.


What I didn’t realise was how big the orchard was! It went on for a while, we wandered up and down between the trees looking at the various different varieties and then looking in amazement at the size of some of the cooking apples!  Of course, we had to sample one or two (we found some nice looking windfallen ones) which Oliver really enjoyed, he got really grumpy when we took the apple away!


We then went onto walk through the pear trees, they were absolutely dripping with pears, they looked so yummy!  When we left the orchard we went to the fruit and veg patches, I was a bit disappointed to see there were no pumpkin plants left in the beds (we later found all the pumpkins in the restaurant).


We then headed back down the hill and popped into the restaurant for a cup of tea and slice of spiced pumpkin cake (it was delicious!). As we left the restaurant it started spitting, so we headed over to the entrance before it started chucking it down.  Walking through the shop, browsing the Christmas selection and then heading home.


We had a really lovely afternoon there and I think we are heading back next weekend for their ‘Taste of Autumn’ show.

          I will have to put that on my visit list if I’m ever in the area! Autumn is so beautiful, I love the summer flower colours, but autumn trees are just so special.

    I keep meaning to visit Wisley one day. We live in Surrey, closer to Croydon though but Wisley isn’t too far really. We’re always outdoors and just love places like this. Sarah #SharingTheBlogLove

    In South Africa we don’t really see the change of seasons as gorgeous as this. However since moving to Michigan USA it has been a wonderful experience seeing how the seasons change. Autumn/Fall is slowly becoming a favorite of mine! Looks like you had a wonderful day out! #BloggerClubUK

    That’s what I love the most about Wisley – that you seem to discover new areas every time you go! We only recently discovered the orchard – after heading down to the trials field (another place we’d never been!) and wandering up through all the apple trees. Gorgeous photos – hope you enjoy the Taste of Autumn festival, we loved it last year! Thanks so much for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove
