Visitors were amazed by the giant pumpkin competition and displays of pumpkins grown by schools in the RHS Campaign for School Gardening.
Want to find out the identity of your fruit tree? The RHS Garden Wisley fruit, vegetable and herb team were at the Horticultural Halls to display and sell their produce - and impart knowledge on all that is apple-related.
There was also a chance to taste apples from RHS Garden Wisley's fantastic selection, which is a great way of deciding which cultivar to grow in your garden.
