The Garden

July 2017

This month, we look at the exciting plans in the pipeline for our flagship RHS Garden at Wisley in Surrey, including a state-of-the-art new science building and fresh plantings.

For gardening inspiration, turn to our feature on some dazzling borders in Oxfordshire, and the uplifting story of Horatio's Garden.

This month we also focus on giant fuchsias and report on a recent RHS Plant Trial of thalictrums. Plus we take a look at campanulas and the bell-shaped beauties that have earned a coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit for their performance in the garden.

Finally, our columnist Alan Gray urges us to consider the fleeting charms of a very particular peony.
