    Special Event

For the first time, two of our popular early spring shows are combining for the first Plant Society show of 2023 in the wonderful RHS Hilltop event hall at RHS Garden Wisley. Visitors can enjoy rare collections and competition classes of early spring-flowering iris and cyclamen as well as a photographic exhibition, plants for sale and friendly experts on hand to answer your questions.

The British Iris Society is showcasing early-flowering Iridaceae, including the reticulate irises. There will be irises from Woottens of Wenhaston for sale and hand-made iris-themed merchandise from society members, as well as information booklets, cards and tote bags. Experts will help answer all your iris-related questions and offer advice on cultivation.

The Cyclamen Society are featuring winter and early spring-flowering species of cyclamen, including Cyclamen coum, C. alpinum and C. elegans. There will be plants for sale and as an added bonus to the usual selections, there is a collection of cyclamen from one of the society members. Browse and buy seeds, books, booklets and cards on the day and experts will be available to offer advice about cultivation in both the garden and greenhouse.

Talks Schedule:

  • 11.30am: Easy cyclamen for the garden – discover the best cultivars for garden use and how to grow them successfully
  • 12.30pm: Tour of the Wisley Alpine Yard - meet at the alpine house at 12.30.
  • 2pm: Growing winter-flowering iris in the garden – how to achieve lovely displays of these plants in your own garden
