Christmas display at the Glasshouse

Christmas display at the Glasshouse

After enjoying the fabulous Autumn hues in October, POD and I headed for the Christmas Display in the Glasshouse at RHS Wisley. Still characteristically beautiful, a few orange Maples remained and we found great displays of Autumnal colour on the ground.

An enormous Christmas tree greeted us when we reached the state-of-the-art Glasshouse. Inside we were treated to air plants with red berries as well as the traditional festive Poinsettia.

Baubles were placed throughout the Glasshouse to give it a Christmas feel. POD enjoyed these but was more excited about testing her new wellies in muddy puddles.

The tropical part of the Glasshouse is my favourite and today was no different – just awash with colour.

One of the most fascinating things we saw were Lady’s Slippers which are members of the Orchid family. As the name suggests, the flower looks like a slipper albeit a teeny tiny one.
