Association members preview RHS Hilltop

10 Jun 2021 | BALI News

The British Association of Landscape Industries was delighted to be able to offer its members a private preview tour of RHS Hilltop, the UK’s first dedicated horticultural centre of excellence.

Chief Executive Wayne Grills and Regional Events Officer Laura Doyle joined several members at the new garden, located at RHS Wisley, on 8 June.

They were greeted by Mark Gregory from Landform Consultants and Mark Pottage, Curator of RHS Wisley, who took them on a walking tour up to the Hilltop building and gardens. Ann-Marie Powell and Matthew Keightley, both designers, then joined the group to discuss their involvement in the project and how it came about, including a Q&A session.

Members and Association staff were then given a tour of the new horticultural science research laboratories, the wellbeing garden, wildlife garden and the world food garden.
