We'll remain here until 8.00pm, so you'll have plenty of time to search for inspiration. Wander the show gardens, examine the rare and unusual plants in the spectacular Floral Pavilions, browse the stalls in search of the latest gardening gifts and gadgets, and seek out advice from the gardening experts.
Enjoy breakfast before we check out and travel to the tranquil RHS Gardens at Wisley, set in 240 acres and developed over 100 years. Admire the dazzling rhododendrons, irises and peonies that signal spring has arrived; wander through the alpine meadow and rock garden; and don't miss the cathedral-like Glasshouse, showcasing plants from around the world.
Take the chance to refuel at the Conservatory Dining Room or Orchard Cafe before we re-board the coach in the mid afternoon, arriving back in the local area by mid-to-late evening.
