delphiniumOK, so it’s another frustrating event for Stateside Road Trips Gardeners: we can look and learn, but we can’t buy at “All About Plants”, a weekend celebrating the past, present and future of plants set for June 20 and 21, 2015, at RHS Garden Wisley, Woking, Surrey, England.

(It’s frustrating because Americans can’t bring plants back home with us due to U.S. agricultural rules.)

Held on the edge of Wilson’s Wood, the weekend brings together a wide range of plant societies, each showcasing their respective plant groups. There will be competitive shows and displays, and even if we can’t buy interesting specialist plants, we can ask experts for advice.

The following will be participating in “All About Plants”:

Delphinium Society
National Dahlia Society
Plant Heritage
British Iris Society
Alpine Garden Society
The Fritillaria Group
National Sweet Pea Society
British Cactus & Succulent Society
The Mammillaria Society
Plants for the Future
Orchid Society of Great Britain
Thames Valley Orchid Society
National Vegetable Society
The Hebe Society
RHS Rhododendron, Camellia & Magnolia Group
The Plantsman
European Boxwood & Topiary Society
The Heather Society
The Peony Society

RHS Fruit Group
British Hosta & Hemerocallis Society
British Clematis Society
