Core Landscapes community roof garden and plant nursery
The GardenCore Landscapes, part of Core Arts' award-winning mental health charity, uses horticulture to transform barren sites into green community havens to promote wellbeing. We have moved four times across three boroughs in the past nine years, but - now firmly rooted in Hackney - our wildlife-friendly roof garden has fruit trees, window box herbaceous borders, a greenhouse, plant nursery, medicinal plants, and food growing. Our shady ground-level garden has a wildlife pond, water harvesting, and a 'woodland meadow' flowerbed. Core Landscapes won an 'Outstanding' in the London in Bloom Awards and a Green Flag Award '21/'22. Plants for sale, plant advice, and inspiration for gardens everywhere.
