'Walkabout Plants'

After 4 March 2013, the following plants were removed from the Mixed Borders:-

as part of the garden maintenance of this garden.

 

'Stateless' Plants

The following are some of the unnamed plants (some have white labels with such small writing; that they are unreadable for the visitor on the adjoining lawn), which were added to the Mixed Borders after 4 March 2013.

The 1,000,000 visitors to this garden per year appreciate the challenge of going away and discovering what is the name of each unlabelled (stateless) plant. Perhaps like other gardens open to the public in the UK, the visitors are expected to believe that they can see and read the plant labels and the writing that was on them which has been washed off by the rain - like the Emperor's subjects can see his new clothes as described below:-

"A vain Emperor who cares for nothing except wearing and displaying clothes hires two swindlers who promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or "hopelessly stupid". The Emperor's ministers cannot see the clothing themselves, but pretend that they can for fear of appearing unfit for their positions and the Emperor does the same. Finally the swindlers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him and the Emperor marches in procession before his subjects. The townsfolk play along with the pretense not wanting to appear unfit for their positions or stupid. Then a child in the crowd, too young to understand the desirability of keeping up the pretense, blurts out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor cringes, suspecting the assertion is true, but continues the procession." from Wikipedia.

My Spring months are March, April and May. My Summer months are June, July and August. My Autumn is September, October, November and Winter is December, January and February.
I do hope that the first frost will not arrive before October as the last month in the RHS August-October Summer is October, since the identity of these plants and the request for you to vote was not available until between the 17 and 24 of July. Photo above from Chris Garnons-Williams on 24 July 2013.

All the Begonia semperflorens trials bedding was removed by 2 November 2013 as can be seen below:-
 

nolabelplant26

It could be an advantage if the paths visible in this photo had edging restraint, foundations and a separator of the foundations from the earth. This would prevent the existing sideways movement and breakage of the slabs together with the future possibility of visitors falling into the beds.

nolabelplant21

The empty Favourite Entry Form box is on top of the Post Box where the completed Favourite Entry Forms should be posted. Perhaps the Entry slips might be provided before more than 2/3rds of the Summer has gone.

A visitor is reading 1 of the trial signs requesting which is your favourite in 1 of 3 Begonia Summer Bedding plant type trials.

You may notice that the visitor is standing up and so can reach the top of the Entry slip boxes, open it, extract a form and close the lid. I suspect a person in a wheelchair might not be able to reach that height and repeat the process with 1 hand and their wheelchair parallel to the bed.

Since the paving slabs in the area where this visitor is standing are already broken - see Further Plant Label and Path Foundation Comments - and I suspect that there is no foundation material under the slabs throughout this Bedding Area, then a wheelchair wheel close to the edge and a person in it leaning over that wheel could pose problems.

The shaded ground under the tree has no bedding in it, since it is shaded and the bedding is unlikely to thrive. But, as this is a trial, why could it not be planted and a sign then indicating why this is the wrong area to plant summer bedding, since it's requirement is full sun to grow, flower and produce the seed required for it to produce new plants next year?

and here - 2 months after the bedding was planted here - are some Favourite Entry Forms for this visitor.

Summer finishes either at the end of August or when the first frost occurs according to the RHS Begonia semperflorens Trial sign above. This could leave Autumn with a shortened time slot, since Southern England rarely has frost in August!!!


Photo from Chris Garnons-Williams on 29 July 2013.

On the 16 September 2013, I took the photo below. On 12 September I took photos of all the Black Plant Labels that I could see in this Bed:-

nolabelplant27

I found, 1, 5, 7, 11, 12, 14, 16, 17, 18, 21, 27, 29, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 36, 37, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 49, 51, 52, 53, 55 and 56, which 33 out of 56 labels.

nolabelplant28

You can see Label of Plant 11 in the photo above but since all the black labels were the same height out of the ground, that is perhaps the reason why 23 of these labels for this Begonia Semperflorens Cultorum Group trial were not visible to me or the public on the 12 September 2013.

The remaining public must have :-

  • super see-through vegetation vision and
  • know the names of these plants during June and July before the list was publicly displayed at the end of July
  • and only vote in that last week in July and August to comply with normal Summer Time when they were told the names of the begonias that corresponded with their respective number on a Black Plant Label

for the following out of the 33 which could be identified for The Garden Magazine of the RHS in January 2014 on Page 23 to report:-

"During the summer, more than 2,000 visitors to RHS Garden Wisley voted in a poll to choose their favourite begonia, as part of the RHS People's Choice initiative.
Visitors were invited to vote for their favourite in three categories:
Begonia Semperflorens Cultorum Group planted in borders (won by Begonia 'Volumia Rose Bicolour..."

which is Number 22 which I could not locate in September 2013.

The refurbishment on this building at Bowles Corner in the Wisley Garden has now been completed (June 2013) for use by the Plant Trials Team at Wisley.

I wonder if there is a mail-order nursery in China that grows and sells this plant in China with its information on its website in both Chinese and English? Then, I could copy the information from China into the Comments Row of that Plant Description page in this website with links to both its English and Chinese page from its Chinese Nursery website about that plant. The information in Chinese and it's English translation could be sent via email to The Embassy of China in Britain; and thence to me using this email address. Then, people from China visiting this country could inform their relatives where they also could get that plant.

I am attempting the same free link to mail-order nursery service for the people of Europe, Latvia, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
