If you weren’t already aware, it’s National Gardening Week and today specifically is National Open Gardens Day. Yes it’s a little damp in London today but remember it’s not about us – it’s about the nations beautiful gardens this week and without the rain we wouldn’t have them to enjoy! Every cloud….
All over the country gardens will be opening their doors to the public today, and places which normally charge entry or are closed to the public, are opening their doors for free so take advantage and take your brolly! Many of the gardens have a magnificent building set within them, so as well as seeing an abundance of flowers, plants and trees you can also experience architecture and history at the same time. Hever Castle in Edenbridge is one such place and was the home of Henry VIIIs most famous wife – Anne Boleyn. At Kew Garden you can adopt a seed and be part of the world’s most important conservation project – brilliant idea!
We have some keen gardeners here at Davis Brown Estate Agents too, multi-talented us lot – I’ve tried some of the home grown fruit and veg! And whether you have acres and acres or simply a modest balcony there is no reason why you can’t grow your own. We have had in the past many properties on our books and currently have on the market too, some fine examples of outside space from large walled gardens to balconies and roof terraces; the montage below is a collection of outside spaces from our properties in Archer Street and Lupus House in Soho, Crawford Place & Welbeck Street in Marylebone, Ordnance Hill in St John’s Wood and Clapham Common. Just because you’re in the centre of town doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some fantastic outside space and get those green fingers to work!
