Three gardens to explore in De Beauvoir, a leafy enclave of Victorian villas near to Islington and Dalston. The area boasts some of Hackney’s keenest gardeners and a thriving garden club. The walled garden at 21 Northchurch Terrace has a formal feel, with deep herbaceous borders, pond, fruit trees, pergola, patio pots and herb beds. 132 Culford Road is a town garden of 110ft x 30ft featuring a large pergola, shingle, chippings and boulder landscaping, with a sunken garden and many shrubs, trees and a fern stumpery. 158 Culford Road is a long narrow garden with a romantic feel and a path winding through full borders with shrubs, small trees, perennials and many unusual plants.
Sunday 17 June (11am - 3pm). Combined admission £6.00, children free. Home-made teas at 158 Culford Road.
