Bina Gardens – Open Garden Squares 2016

This year I visited gardens between Earls Court and Gloucester Road underground stations during the Open Garden Squares Weekend, starting with Bina Gardens East.

This peaceful and lush garden has been cleverly designed and planted to created different areas and climates. Treed walks are filled with shade-loving plants, and the play of light through the leaves is marvellous.

There are unusual plants and trees – variegated Kerria and Cornus help to lighten the narrow space. Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ is a delight, and the Paperbark Birch tree is beautiful.

This is a quiet, peaceful haven hidden between the buildings and created by enthusiastic triumvirate of ladies. Do visit next year!
