London Calling

Posted by on August 7, 2006 in Garden

I’m heading to London soon.  Any gardens or garden-related tourism I should add to the plan?  I might also be in Kent for a couple days.


  1. Amy,
    With the drought we’ve had even the public gardens which are still allowed to water are suffering.
    But try visiting Kew, also the Chelsea Physic Garden. If you’re in Kent then why not a pilgrimage to Vita Sackville West’s /Howard Nicholson’s Sissinghurst?

  2. Amy: Sissinghurst is the best! Loved it! Wish I had been to Foggy Bottom-Adrian Bloom, and also Beth Chatto’s garden but no time so try them if you have the time.

  3. If you are in Kent then Sussex is only just down the road. In which case you should try and visit Great Dixter.
    Have a good trip!
