The National Gardens Scheme says “An exotic garden full of the exuberance of late summer inspired by travel in Southeast Asia. A lush and naturalistic jungle of big leafed plants, bold colours and shapes including cannas, bananas, Bamboos, dahlias and towering paulownias. Wandering the garden we hope you will be surprised by unusual plants, and lost in the exotica. The garden changes and improves very year as the plants grow bigger and the feel gets junglier.
Huge ‘hidden’ garden, created from being able to buy the bottom half of two of the neighbour’s gardens gives the garden an unexpected size. Overall there are two ponds (one for wildlife and one with fish), bee hives, a productive area and contemporary sunken terrace full of prized plants.
The lower lawn, lots of seating and hidden corners give space to sit and enjoy. Renowned for good teas and home-made cakes and plant sale. Featured on BBC Gardeners World, BBC Instant Gardener and in the Independent”
Getting here: we are on the Chadwick Road end of Grove Park (our road can be confusing as it has a loop in the middle). There is lots of street parking. It’s about a 10 minute walk from either Denmark Hill or Peckham Rye train station (Victoria/London Bridge)
