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.
