London for Gardeners

London absolutely loves getting it's green little fingers dirty...

London may not be immediately synonymous with gardening... with space at such a premium in central London who's got room for a garden?

... but dig a little deeper and you'll find that London absolutely loves getting it's green little fingers dirty and having a potter amongst the rhododendrons.

Right off the bat, there's the Chelsea Flower Show - the UK's premier horticultural event, add to that Kew Gardens - one of Europe's most famous gardening and horticultural institutes, throw in more green spaces and public gardens than you could shake a trowel at... and it turns out that London has actually got a pretty darned good pedigree in gardening, after all!

Whether you've got a patch of garden to call your own, an allotment, a window-box or just an interest in all things fruit, veg and flower; take a look at our London for Gardeners section for a bit of inspiration.
