Wed. 26 Sep, 2018 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

There’s no right or wrong answer on this Incredible Inventions family trail, it’s all up to you to decide what tool you want to invent. Spot the trail boards around the Pleasure Grounds with a different step to complete an outstanding invention.

Along the route also look out for letters hidden on our trail boards and un-jumble these letters to spell out a word.

Suitable for 4 to 12 year olds you can collect your Incredible Inventions trail from the Car Park or Church Lodge Receptions at £3 each.  The route is suitable for buggies on a paved route but can be muddy in wet weather. Please collect your prize from receptions before 4:30pm.

Aroid Display in the Glasshouse at RHS Wisley

Wed. 26 Sep, 2018 10:00 am - 5:15 pm

This unusual family of plants, sometimes known as the Arum or Philodendron family, will be the star of the show with giant leaves and its distinctive flower shape. Aroids are a fascinating group of plants, grown for their unusual flowers and sometimes dramatic foliage. The arum family (Araceae) is a diverse and fascinating group of herbaceous plants that have successfully climbed (Monstera), floated (Lemna) and spread (Arum) their way through the past 122 million years of evolutionary history. Their defining characteristic is the unusual flower structure. Many small flowers are packed tightly together around a club-like spadix, which is in turn surrounded by a hooded spathe. Free with normal Garden admission.
