On the cover:

While you’ll find plenty about the future of RHS Garden Wisley and why it’s a great spring day out in this edition, did you know its famous Rock Garden is more than 100 years old, having been built in 1911 by James Pulham & Son? The stunning shot featured on this month’s cover was taken by photographer Jason Ingram. For more about the RHS and their work, visit rhs.org.uk
