Walking Wisley

RHS WisleyWisley is the Royal Horticultural Society’s flagship garden.It also home to the national collection of rhubarbs and a recent visit coincided with a celebration of rhubarb, which, like Marmite, you either love or hate!

I love it and celebrated this with a piece of Rhubarb Spelt Cake in Wisley’s newly opened food hall.

Here’s a recipe for the cake from Croft Garden, an inspiring WordPress site about the challenge of creating and maintaining a garden on a croft in the Outer Hebrides.

    Thank you for visiting the croft garden. I hope you enjoyed the cake, it is a great favourite in a household that adores rhubarb.

      Hi there, nice to ‘meet’ you. I’ll let you know when I use your recipe (and blog it). I’m a keen gardener but not a keen cook, so if the cake fails, it’ll be my fault! It was good that rhubarb brought me to your blog … 🙂


  2. I “liked” the post but unfortunately I’m severely allergic to rhubarb, can’t even stand the smell of it cooking now due to past reactions!

      Oh dear! I know that the leaves are poisonous, being high in oxalic acid, but that’s to everybody. When I make up the rhubarb cake recipe I’ll post the results. You could always substitute the rhubarb – I’m thinking of morello cherries and my mouth is watering! But then I’ve been to the dentist this morning … 🙂
