Tewkesbury Lodge garden opening 2013

A group of four very different gardens in Forest Hill will be open to the public under the National Garden Scheme on 15th June (5-8pm) and 16th June (2-6pm). Situated just behind the Horniman Museum, the gardens are within a few minutes walk of each other on a hill with spectacular views over London and the North Downs. All proceeds will go to cancer, caring, and gardening charities.

The gardens opening are:
27 Horniman Drive
28 Horniman Drive
53 Ringmore Rise
Coach House, 3 The Hermitage, Westwood Park

Discover a sculptor’s creative courtyard garden crammed with unusual plants and the artist’s sculptures and ceramics (for sale); rich colours in borders with formal outlines to complement a modern extension, a potager-style vegetable area and low maintenance front garden; informal borders crammed with herbaceous plants and shrubs to suit a variety of conditions in full sun or deep shade, with a corner plot inspired by Beth Chatto's dry garden; and a garden in two sections with deep informal flower borders under mature trees, raised vegetable beds, a fruit cage, greenhouse, chicken run, and working and wildlife areas – plus a story trail for children.

Combined admission: £6 (payable at 27 Horniman Drive). No charge for accompanied children.
Tea and homemade cakes on Sunday. Plants for sale on both days.
Please note: Sorry, hillside gardens mean wheelchair access not possible. Well-trained dogs on leads welcome.
