On one of the first real days of spring, I was extremely lucky to be giving my ‘New, different and unusual plants’ gardening talk to a garden club set in a very unusual location.
Located one hundred feet above Kensington High Street in central London, The Roof Gardens are spectacular. They were the dream child of the vice president of the Barkers store and are made up of 3 themed gardens.
There are more than 70 full size trees, a flowing stream stocked with fish and the legendary flamingoes named Bill, Ben, Splosh and Pecks. Sir Richard Branson purchased the gardens in 1981.
The Roof Gardens certainly felt a different location to the village halls where I’d usually be speaking!
If you’d like me to give a gardening talk at your garden club (or indeed any activity club), then please get in touch with me by email.
