    Special Event

RHS Garden Wisley is a garden for all seasons, and as we enter the eagerly anticipated spring, Wisley comes alive as hundreds of flowering cherries light up the garden with white and pink blossom. We're lucky to have a wealth of mature and interesting flowering cherries including, more than 140 Yoshino cherry trees (Prunus × yedoensis) on the Welcome Landscape.

To celebrate the arrival of cherry blossom season, we invite you to join our expert Garden team on a tour of the magnificent Cherry Trees at Wisley, followed by cocktails and a five-course Asian-inspired set menu* in the Terrace Restaurant.  

During dessert and coffee, special guest speaker, author Naoko Abe, will give a talk on the exciting history of ‘Cherry’ Ingram (the Englishman who saved Japan's blossoms).
