About Our Garden:
The original planting in 1990 was a donation from the gold-medal-winning Crabtree & Evelyn Chelsea Flower Show scented garden to form part of the London Lighthouse HIV/AIDS centre. Since then the garden has developed to form a secluded enclave in the heart of busy Ladbroke Grove.
The garden is a south-facing courtyard, enclosed by walls on three sides. The planting includes a mixture of herbaceous perennials, climbers and tender sub-tropical plants, such as Burgmansia, Abutilon and Musa, which flourish in this microclimate. Nest boxes encourage a number of small bird species to thrive in the garden. The pond contains around 30 goldfish.
About Open Garden Squares Weekend:
Open Garden Squares Weekend highlights some of the best gardens and green spaces that make up the rich tapestry of London’s green infrastructure, but there are many others – just as valuable to their communities – which are in decline or under threat of development. Funds raised during OGSW mean that the London Parks and Gardens Trust can continue its work to protect them.
