Camberwell Grove Gardens

This year these neighbouring walled gardens behind C18 houses in this beautiful tree lined street will be opening in July. At No.81 a tall Trachycarpus Palm and a magnolia grandiflora shade York stone paving and borders filled with herbaceous perennials and shade loving ground cover. There is a pond and bog garden. Pots of all sizes line the steps to the kitchen door and the terrace outside the garden room and greenhouse. No. 83 is a mature beautifully designed plant lovers’ garden. Abundant unusual planting within a structure of box hedging provides varied and interesting areas of peace and privacy. As trees mature the nature of the garden is changing, and more shade tolerant perennials are being introduced. Contemporary garden room, gravel and York stone paths and seating areas, calming pool and lovely views of parish church. Delicious home-made cakes and tea at 81 and sparkling wine at 83.
