February 14, 2011toFebruary 27, 2011

Great news! Due to its popularity, the Butterflies in the Glasshouse event has been extended until Sunday 6th March!


Join in the fun at RHS Garden Wisley this February half term with a wide range of Brilliant Bird themed activities and a spectacular display of exotic Butterflies in the Glasshouse.

Brilliant Birds

Over the week learn how to make a bird feeder to hang in the garden at home, make a bouncing bird in a fun art activity, take part in a Bird Survey, head down to the Pinetum to check out the new Bird Hide or just come to one of the popular Birds of Prey flying displays that will be on Seven Acres lawn.

Butterflies in the Glasshouse

Whilst you are at RHS Garden Wisley, why not head to the warmth of the Glasshouse where you can marvel at the tropical flowers and the exotic butterflies that have made the Glasshouse their home for the past month.  This will be your last chance to see these beautiful insects as ‘Butterflies in the Glasshouse’ ends on 6 March.

All activities are free with Garden Entry.
