Generously proportioned, mature garden with unusual and marginally tender shrubs which thrive in the hands of a keen propagator.  Agapanthus, a signature plant followed by oleander, and a splendid clerodendron.  Backing onto Dulwich Park, it has a countryside feel – a true family garden with sandpit and hammock mingling with a hardworking greenhouse and a super wormery, which will be demonstrated.  Jazz band, cakes and tea, children’s trail, plant sales.

Luscious planting in deep herbacious borders with shrubs, unusual specimens and arching roses, alongside an immaculate lawn.  Pass under an ancient pear tree through a magical perfumed white rose garden to unfold the surprise – a small wildflower meadow with a pond attracting wildlife, particularly butterflies – all with a wonderful backdrop of green Dulwich Park.  The front garden is a mix of white flowers/varigated greenery.  A plant collectors garden.
