The Forest Hill Garden Group invite you to come and visit 6 breathtaking private gardens located on the TLERA estate as part of the National Garden Scheme.
Featuring six very different gardens on the highest hill in SE London with spectacular views over London and the Downs. The gardens are within a short walk of each other, but a yellow ballooned ‘taxi’ service is on hand (donations) for those with mobility problems. Wander in a bee friendly organic flower and fruit haven with vintage summerhouse, gravelled terraces and billowing grasses. See an evolving plants-woman’s garden, now with prairie planting in the sunny dry garden contrasting with a new watery fern garden. Also new for 2017: a small meadow, an ever changing story trail for children, and new chicken breeds in an eclectic country style garden. Delight in an artist’s studio in an c18th courtyard filled with sculptures and plants and feed the resident robins!
Enjoy an embroidery of a garden with vibrant colours and breathtaking views. Unwind with delicious cakes and listen to music from a talented duo amidst the drifting pastel hues of the tea lady’s garden inspired by Beth Chatto – and Mary Berry!
