Join us for a late summer show at RHS Wisley Flower Show. What better way to round off the season of RHS events with a trip to the newly developed Wisley gardens? We will be exhibiting our Scotney mobile greenhouse in the gardens on stand 'M'.
Wisley gardens are diverse and there is plenty to explore when you visit. From the large cathedral like glasshouse to the vegetable and fruit gardens, Wisley is a fantastic demonstration of the horticultural world. The site itself has recently undergone some immense improvements into creating a more green and eco-friendly space.
Some of the major investments and work undergone at Wisley are:
1. Air source heat pumps - warm air from outdoors is extracted via heat pumps and used to fuel the underfloor heating in the welcome building. This technology has diminished the dependency on oil-fired heating.
2. Considerate Construction - 98% of construction waste has been recycled and 100% of the lighting is LED. High insulation is maintained throughout the structure.
3. The development of The Plant Centre - On a mission to begin 'Greening Great Britain', Wisley now have a dedicated centre for individual growers of rare species of plants, available for people to purchase, encouraging them to plant up at home.
