I remember when I first came to the UK in 2017, I was fascinated by the neat and exquisite community streets and the street decorations with rich cultural and artistic atmosphere. When I went deep into the British community, I was attracted by the exquisite garden in front of ma你也private houses. The exquisite statues, flat grass, elegant masonry and patchwork of plants and flowers all fascinated me about the British people’s strong love for the garden and the elegant lifestyle it embodies.
The British maritime climate is comparatively warm and very rainy, and is particularly suitable for the growth of succulent plants and negative plants. Its cool summer will make some shrubs have a particularly long flowering period, and the rainy climate makes the flowers basically free of dust and dirt. Even in the deep winter when the ten thousand trees are deciduous and withered, the English grassland is still lush and green, which forms a vivid color comparison with a brown forest. So in terms of natural conditions, the British climatic characteristics make the garden’s components are very complete and the maintenance costs in a pretty low level. Of course, the Britain’s rich cultural heritage and the rendering of humanities and artistic styles also make the people of this country have a strong love for gardens. If you read British literature and drama, you will also find that the garden is always a place of many important events, and even runs through the full text. The garden in many works has played the role of “plot trigger” and “rhythm converter”.
如果你也恰好对花园文化有浓厚兴趣，英国皇家园艺学会Royal Horticultural Society (RHS)遍布英国的花园是非常值得一看的。RHS目前在英国运营五个花园；除了萨里郡威斯利花园外，其他的分别是Harlow Carr，Hyde Hall，Rosemoor和将于2021念开业的Bridgewater。威斯利花园Wisley是一个占地超过240英亩的大型花园。该地点包含许多正式和非正式的花园景点，数个大型温室，果园和植物园。此外，还有许多小型“样板花园”，向参观者展示他们如何可以在自己住宅营造这般美丽的花园，现场还提供餐饮和花卉的零售服务。

Visited here due for the first time and loved the place. The gardens are huge and there is so much to see, with a lot of formal gardens around the place we spent a good 4-5 hours walking around the place. As a Chinese I was really happy to see a Chinese style lakeshore pavilion, which made me feel like back to the citizen park of my home city. Food is still being served albeit not in a restaurant but was fantastic quality. The garden centre is huge and has a great selection and is cheaper than other garden centres we have encountered.
Wisley由维多利亚州商人和RHS成员George Ferguson Wilson创立，他们于1878年购买了60英亩（243,000平方米）的土地。他在网站的一部分上建立了“奥克伍德实验花园”，在那里他试图“使困难的植物成功生长”。威尔逊Wilson于1902年去世，奥克伍德Oakwood（也被称为格莱布农场Glebe Farm）由意大利里维埃拉著名花园拉莫托拉La Mortola的创造者托马斯·汉伯里Thomas Hanbury爵士购得。1903年，他将Wisley花园委托给了RHS来维护管理。
The history of RHS Wisley Garden
Wisley was founded by Victorian businessman and RHS member George Ferguson Wilson, who purchased a 60-acre (243,000 m²) site in 1878. He established the “Oakwood Experimental Garden” on part of the site, where he attempted to “make difficult plants grow successfully”. Wilson died in 1902 and Oakwood (which was also known as Glebe Farm) was purchased by Thomas Hanbury, the creator of the celebrated garden La Mortola on the Italian Riviera. He handed the Wisley park over to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1903.
There is a s small scale “model gardens” which are intended to show visitors what they can achieve in their own gardens, and a trials field where new cultivars are assessed. It can also used as the laboratory, for both scientific research and training, was originally opened in 1907, but proved inadequate to be opened to the public. It was expanded and its exterior was rebuilt during World War I. It was designated a Grade II Listed building in 1985.
