The Garden

This garden has won numberous awards, including: the RHS and London in Bloom “It's Your Neighbourhood” Level 5 Outstanding Award in 2020, 2021 and 2022; the London in Bloom Outstanding Achievement Award in 2021; and The Worshipful Company of Gardeners’ Best Small Garden award in Summer 2021. This is a testament to its creator's passion for horticulture. Nic, one of the Corporation of London gardeners, works with volunteers to nurture the plants - some he grows from seeds or bulbs, some he rescues and others are donated - in a relaxed approach to horticulture, before the plants are passed on to neighbouring community garden projects. Nic is a passionate and knowledgeable champion of bringing biodiversity into city spaces through his work with community groups.
