RHS Garden Wisley will reopen to the public tomorrow, it has been confirmed. Visitors planning to visit the gardens today in Woking, Surrey were not be able to gain entry into the grounds following a water main fault which caused its temporary closure.
However, a rep for RHS has since confirmed to Miescisko UK that the water issue has now been fixed and the garden will be back up and running tomorrow (Tuesday 26 February).
RHS first notified visitors this morning that the opening of the garden was 'temporarily delayed' due to an 'unforeseen issue with the water supply', but nearly two hours later an update followed.
'Wisley will remain closed today as there has been a problem with a water main and the garden is currently without water,' read the updated statement. 'We are working to get the issue resolved as soon as possible and hope to re-open tomorrow. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.'
RHS advised visitors to check the website for most recent updates, as the unforeseen closures had already caused significant road delays.
The water fault comes as spring weather graces the UK early – despite still being in winter – with plenty of warm sunshine. Temperatures in Woking will reach highs of 17 degrees today, with tomorrow as high as 18 degrees.
Wisley is home to some of the largest plant collections anywhere in the world, with tons of workshops and events and gardens to explore every season, including the rock garden, cottage garden and glasshouse.
In late summer 2017, they opened the new Exotic Garden, described as a little slice of paradise, which showcases a range of exuberant plants from around the world.
