This garden is a bliss of latin gems, founded in 1673. We went back for the second time as part of London Open Squares Weekend 2012 and are so glad we did. About a quarter of the garden has recently been redesigned to show new plant approaches, whereas traditional areas remain, including the hot houses, specimen trees, water features and fernery.
I now have horse tails in my garden.
When you want a plant, if in doubt about remembering the name, take a pic of the tab. This furry catmint-like plant is on the hit list of must haves.
I think the bark on this maple is delicious.
The new planting.
And the good old murderous plant section.
When visited: June 2012
Garden * out of 5: **** (because there are plants here I’ve never seen elsewhere)
