35 Turret Grove

This garden shows what can be achieved in a small space (8m x 25m). The owners, who make no secret of disregarding the rule book, describe this visual feast of intoxicating colours as Clapham meets Jamaica. This is gardening at its most exuberant, where bananas, bamboos, gingers, tree ferns and fire bright plants flourish beside the traditional.

Children welcome.

Sunday 23 July (10am - 5pm). Admission £4.00, children free. Home-made teas. Also open 2 Littlebury Road.
