In a monthly series in the RHS Gardening Podcast, botanist James Armitage explores some of the unusual and unsung stars of Wisley's plant collections
Chinese sea buckthorn, despite its name, hails from high mountains and grows well in the landlocked confines of Wisley, where it bears testament to one of the greatest plant-hunting partnerships of all time.
A fusion of two conifers from the West Coast of America created a very British tree - one that perhaps deserves more respect than it currently receives...
Compiled more than a century ago, the first Wisley Flora painted a vivid picture of a now-vanished world. However, there are still new wild plants to be found in the garden.
James relives the tale of a spectacular peony whose 60-year journey to Wisley spanned half the globe.
More than a century after it was first planted, a diminutive relative of the giant Titan arum lives on in Wisley's Wild Garden.
James heads into the woods on the trail of beautiful vampire, unearthing some surprising historical facts along the way.
James joined us as a botanist in 2002, straight from Reading University and he is now Principal Scientist of Horticultural Taxonomy. A future ambition is to help provide a complete catalogue of the cultivated plants of the British Isles. “With garden plants there is always something new to discover,” he says. “It is the constant opportunity to learn that keeps my work so interesting.”
