Small urban garden packed with bright colours and creative use of space. Featuring many unusual Dahlias, a living wall containing 50 different Fern species, micro-pond, tropical plants and quirky indoor plants. This is a garden where the plants are very happy and the inspiration behind the garden is very clear.
Owned by a garden designer and blogger but is not designed, Littlebury is an experimental trial ground for new ideas.
The owners Jack and Chris recently renovated the entire flat to open out the back of the house to look onto the garden all year round, and the garden is designed so that all the year round there is something interesting to see.
