An Upbeat Unveiling Ceremony
The new avenue of trees was first seen by the public at the official unveiling of the RHS Garden Wisley Welcome building on 10th June 2019. At the ceremony, Alan Titchmarsh led the opening and delivered an upbeat speech in support of British growers. Guests were impressed by the new Welcome building, which includes an expanded garden centre, 100-seater cafe and gift shop along with the new avenue of trees that will grow in magnificence for years to come.
“The RHS Garden at Wisley has long since had a relationship with the Hillier Nursery, with many of the original trees for the Jubilee Arboretum being supplied in the late seventies,” comments Matthew Potage, Curator at RHS Garden Wisley. “We are proud to still have a strong working relationship for quality trees to this day, for one of the most exciting developments the garden has seen for many years.”
