hidden gardens

its always great to discover new gardens in central london, and Olden community garden is right opposite Arsenal football stadium.    its a community garden – used by schools to learn about horticulture; but has a lovely garden house that is available for private functions.  last night, my  friend and gardener Laura who created the wonderful garden in my new suffolk cottage, hosted a night of delicious food – all money raised went to the Refugee Community Kitchen who provide food for refugees living in the camps of europe.   Laura not only helps out at the olden community gardens, but also goes over to calais at xmas time to help in the camps.  i am always amazed by some people’s passion and generosity towards good causes;   see her new website.    I note that the olden community garden is open to the public once a month on the 3rd saturday of every month.

some other interesting gardens to visit, highgrove gardens in gloucestershire, the lost gardens of heligan in cornwall, holkham hall in norfolk, helmsley walled garden in yorkshire.
