Wisley boasts a really fine collection of Redwood trees, mostly large and over a hundred years old, but with a couple of young examples. Whether you have an interest in these trees or not, Wisley is definitely worth a visit for the stunning displays of plants and flowers in a lovely countryside setting. Still, this is nothing less than one would expect since this is one of the main sites of the Royal Horticultural Society. There is also a huge multi-level glasshouse, opened in 2007, featuring temperate through to tropical zones crammed with stunning displays.

** UPDATE - AUGUST 2017 **

Alan Titchmarsh vows to save Queen's tree in M25 row "One option would take out a bank of trees including giant redwoods."


Not a Redwood tree but this Autumn flower at Wisley just has to be included!
The trees are listed below following an anti-clockwise course around the gardens.
