Highlights of the 2017 Show

The RHS Harvest Festival Show celebrated with the Giant Pumpkin and Autumn Fruit and Vegetable competitions. The show was free to attend and had a wealth of information on growing, harvesting and using garden produce, along with apples and chillies to taste and buy - and if visitors had a query, the Wisley experts on hand helped to identify their fruit.
