The Garden

Enter another world and discover the National Collection of Corokia along with many other unusual plants including interesting exotics from all over the world, particularly New Zealand. 
In this award-winning garden - voted 'Best Back garden' by the London Gardens Society - the emphasis is on texture, shapes and contrasting foliage colour.
It's taken 300 tons of landscaping material, including top soil, compost, gravel, and granite setts to give the plants the conditions they require and for maximum visual impact. Sculpting and shaping the plants in order to give the whole garden a three-dimensional 'see through' effect is also key to the overall design.

Owner- Head Gardener: Mona Abboud
